Our music

 We play arrangements written by our tutors Beccy Perez Rork and Mark Bassey. The music has a Jazz bias with Funk, Latin and Pop sneaking in as well.


At the end of each term we perform the tunes we've been working on with a jazz rhythm section. At the end of the summer term we often play in the open air, The Pavilion Gardens in Brighton or on the Brighton Bandstand we have also performed at various venues e.g. Burning of the Clocks, The Olympic Torch Relay, and Lark in the Park, part of the Brighton Festival Fringe.
