Learn jazz from James Morrison at The Arts Centre Gold Coast

Australia’s king of jazz, James Morrison, is coming to The Arts Centre Gold Coast later this year – and local high school students are being offered the chance to get tuition and advice from James himself.

Jazz Jam @ The Arts Centre is an exclusive, five-day residency program designed by James Morrison himself to give young, talented players a chance to immerse themselves in all elements of being a jazz musician.

Throughout the week, students will get the chance to be mentored by James Morrison and students from the James Morrison Academy of Music (JMA). The week also includes jam sessions, a movie night, and dedicated ‘band hang’ time with the JMA band.


The residency will then culminate in the opportunity of a lifetime – with participants forming a b ig band to feature alongside James and the JMA Jazz Orchestra during his public concert at The Arts Centre Gold Coast on Saturday 23 September 2017.

Apply before Sunday 30 April through The Arts Centre Gold Coast website.
