The ENU Sing Jazz Course

A brand new five-day course developed specifically for vocalists, run in conjunction with the Edinburgh Napier University Jazz Summer School.

Hosted by Edinburgh Napier University Music Department and in association with the Edinburgh Jazz & Blues Festival, the emphasis will, as always, be on understanding through a hands–on approach to the music, culminating in a final concert at a festival venue on the afternoon of Friday 20th July 2018. To support and enhance your learning you will be offered complimentary tickets for selected Edinburgh Jazz Festival evening concerts throughout duration of the course. Tutors will be drawn from a pool of the finest domestic and international musician/educators participating in the festival.

For information and booking forms please contact Course Director, Haftor Medbøe:

Comments from previous students

"First of all our singing teacher Jessie was really great, and as a member of a Jazz Choir through in Glasgow has helped to improove my performance singing Jazz with my choir. I had never met the people on this Jazz course before but by the end of the week we were real friends.”

"Thanks to our tutor's patient instruction and enthusiastic encouragement, I felt confident enough to to move out of my comfort zone and sing by myself on stage in front of an audience for the first time in decades.  Sharing the stage with other musicians, both fellow students and professionals, was a highlight, as was our alfresco 'flash mob' performance! I had a thoroughly enjoyable week and hope to return.”
