want to start making your own music?

Our Future Sound programme is about connecting you with inspiring, relatable professional jazz musicians. The artists show you how it’s possible to have a career in the music industry, plus help you develop your musical and composition skills and build your confidence.

There are two ways to get involved in Future Sound:


Do you want to start creating your own music?  Learn how with our free videos on songwriting and what it takes to become a professional musician. There’s lots of creative, practical online tutorials to watch, whatever level you’re at.
