About & Joining

At Jazz Factory  you make the music.

Spend your Monday evenings making music and exploring jazz styles. Work with professional musicians. Express yourself through voice, horn, reed, percussion or guitar.  Dust off that instrument and gain a new confidence in performing on stage.  There’s something for everyone at the Jazz Factory. From historical roots to contemporary avant-garde, from hot to cool, from swing to soul – the great composers, vocalists, soloists – the wide world of jazz!

We run three instrumental groups and a vocal group, led by local experienced professional jazz musicians, in a structured workshop style.  You will work on a selection of tunes and learn improvisation as well as about playing or singing in a band.  Every term ends with the Showcase Concert in the Auditorium, making full use of the fantastic facilities at the Wiltshire Music Centre.

JOINING

There’s always room for more. If you are interested in joining, come along to a session within the first 3 weeks of term, the dates are here. Please arrive by 7pm to register where you will meet our Secretary and Musical Director who will help with placement into a group. First session is only £5.
