Free online jazz sessions over the summer 3-7 August

Simon Lodge, who runs our AGGS Jazz Band is promoting a great jazz online course over the summer.
This would be great for any budding jazz musicians – aged 11-18.
Woodwind, brass, guitar and piano players, and drummers all welcome who have Grade 3 + approximate level.

He says
‘We hold the course every year and I do invite the students but it’s normally in Macclesfield, this year we’re online and it’s free so really accessible!’

Let it Be, arranged by the inspiring young saxophonist Jess Gillam

Please enjoy watching this wonderful version of Let it Be, arranged by the inspiring young saxophonist Jess Gillam.

All AGGS music classes were invited to join this project by uploading a video of either playing an instrument or singing. The arrangement is a lovely one.

It was serendipity as we sing Let it Be regularly in our AGGS assemblies and often it’s this song that is chosen by Y11 and Y13 in their leavers’ assembly.

A big thank you to our wonderful team of 14 instrumental teachers, who are teaching students remotely and who encouraged their pupils to record a part.

Look out for the following students, who have let me know they were involved. Some specified the time they can be seen. They will all be awarded a merit:

7-3 Kalila R           double bass
7-3 Maia S H         singing      – 3.37
8-2 Abi H               singing
