Trumpet Masterclass with Quentin Collins in association with Ronnie Scott’s Charitable Foundation

Doncaster Youth Jazz Association is delighted to be presenting the first in a series of jazz masterclasses with some of the nation’s best loved musicians.

Brought to you in association with Ronnie Scott’s Charitable Foundation our trumpet masterclass will be hosted by Quentin Collins. In 20 years as a professional Quentin has established himself as one of the UK’s top Jazz / commercial trumpeters, having performed toured and recorded with a plethora of internationally renowned artists across many genres.  These include Fred Wesley, Gregory Porter, Mark Ronson, Kyle Eastwood, Omar, Basement Jaxx, Roy Ayers, Alicia Keys, Dennis Rollins and Mulatu Astake. Quentin released his debut solo album “If Not Now, Then When?” on SunlightSquare Records in 2007 to much critical acclaim.  He currently leads QC/BA, a Hammond-organ quartet with tenor sax titan Brandon Allen.

Workshop details to follow.

DYJA and Ronnie Scott’s Charitable Foundation working together for 2017!

Doncaster Youth Jazz Association are excited to be delivering some of it’s 2017 music educational programme in partnership with the Ronnie Scott’s Charitable Foundation. From January 2017 we have a host of new projects planned that are designed to get the Yorkshire region’s young jazz musicians engaged in music.  Look out for “Trombones on the Slide” a pilot programme engaging with local primary schools with the hope of producing a new round of trombonists. (more to follow in the next few weeks). Or perhaps, as a budding young musician one of our Masterclasses headed up by the likes of Quentin Collins (trumpet), Lee Gibson (vocals) and Dennis Rollins (trombone), takes your fancy. All activity is FREE to attend. Watch this space for more information coming in the next few weeks!
