Are you an artist who has either tried, or would like to try, working with improvisation in your music? Soundcheck will help define what jazz means to you.

There are 10 places up for grabs and we want to make sure everyone across the whole of Greater Manchester has a chance to apply. 

We invite you to apply by filling out this short form (we’ve timed it, and think it takes about 15 minutes to complete). You will also need to upload a 3 minute video of you performing an original piece of music. Please be aware that you cannot save and return to this form or download a copy of your answers afterwards.

If you’d prefer to apply by video instead, answering the questions by speaking to a camera, that’s fine. Just film yourself answering the same questions in this form, upload the video to WeTransfer and send it to talent@manchesterjazz.com

If you have any questions, if you need support, further details or need the application form in a different format, please contact Helen Goodman 

Thank you very much for taking the time to apply, and we look forward to connecting with you.
