The recent launch of our Eastside Jazz Club has helped consolidate the integral role that Royal Birmingham Conservatoire has to play in a major UK city that enjoys a thriving jazz scene. While Birmingham’s jazz scene has been established over many years, our bespoke new venue strengthens the promise of an exciting future for Jazz in the city. Our Jazz Department is based around the Club, where student musicians share a platform and get invaluable side-by-side performance experience with the best on the scene, whom we welcome to our stage on a regular basis.

Designed for recent graduates and suitably qualified mature students, our postgraduate courses in Jazz provide high quality advanced-level tuition, enabling you to specialise either as a Jazz performer or instigator. We aim to provide excellent opportunities for you to develop other skills relevant to a future career in the music profession, including opportunities for external gig experience that familiarise you with the industry; one of many ways we prepare you for the future.

In addition to our lively Jazz department, at Royal Birmingham Conservatoire we provide a friendly and supportive environment in which you can pursue your postgraduate studies. This is a time when you need to think particularly carefully and strategically about the direction of your developing career as a musician. We therefore encourage you to be ambitious in pursuing your aspirations, and endeavour to provide you with the flexibility to mould your course to your individual needs, both within your Principal Study area and in complementary modules.
