Jazz certificates and diplomas

In 1994 the University of St Andrews established the Scottish Certificate in Jazz and followed this in 1995 with the Advanced Diploma. In response to numerous enquiries from former students, the Graduate Diploma in Jazz was launched in 2009. The certificate and diplomas are aimed at professional, semi-professional and aspiring musicians. The courses run throughout the academic year and consist of study days, contact days and a final study weekend in St Andrews, combined with distance learning.

The courses are held in the Music Centre based at Younger Hall, North St, St Andrews. This large building houses a concert hall seating up to 1,000 people and is the main concert venue in St Andrews. It hosts performances by professional and amateur musicians, including regular visits by the University’s Orchestra in Residence the Scottish Chamber Orchestra, a series of chamber music concerts by internationally renowned artists, weekly Wednesday lunchtime concerts, jazz nights and much more.

The University of St Andrews offers three part-time courses in jazz:

Scottish Certificate in Jazz

The aim of the Scottish Certificate in Jazz is to provide a grounding in jazz performance skills for jazz musicians who wish to expand their academic understanding, and also for musicians with no jazz experience who are eager to develop their work in this style, either for performance or teaching.

Advanced Diploma in Jazz

The aim of the Advanced Diploma in Jazz is to increase the knowledge and extend the skills of jazz musicians.

Graduate Diploma in Jazz

The aim is to provide a professional training in jazz performance skills with supporting theoretical studies.

Fees and funding

The cost of each course is £500. This is payable in three instalments: £100 upon registration, followed by £200 on each of the first two study days. Payment may be made through the University’s online shop.

Course fees are non-refundable. If after the first study day you decide that you do not wish to continue with the course, you must notify the course coordinator in writing within seven days.

The St Andrews jazz courses are approved for funding by the Student Awards Agency for Scotland (SAAS). The SAAS part-time fee grant is available for students who are ordinarily resident in Scotland and have an individual income of £25,000 or less. For more information please see the SAAS part-time fee grant page.


Vocal workshops NYC

Marianne Solivan is a jazz vocalist and educator and director of the MS Jazz Vocal workshop in NYC. She teaches 8 week workshops that delve deeply into the art of singing jazz and working with a band. Every week singers get to work with some of NYC’s finest jazz musicians and hone their skills and musical terminology so that they can effectively arrange and direct their material. We also work on swing well and singing in other jazz grooves, counting off, giving cues, creating arrangements, phrasing, having good time and learning more about how to improvise.
This summer we had out first Summer Concert Series featuring singers from the workshop. In addition, every 8 week class ends with a performance at ta NYC Jazz club. Past clubs include Zeb’s, Smalls, Don’t Tell Mama’s and Mezzrow.

Two new 8 week workshops beginning in September.
This Fall there will be two workshops on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings at Michiko Studios. These are great classes where you get to work with a trio every week and work on arrangements, phrasing, band leadership and directing your vision for your song all while working with some of the best musicians in town. Stage 1, on Tuesday Nights is for students that are looking to work on terminology, cues, grooves and phrasing.
Stage 2, Wednesday nights will be for students that feel comfortable with musical terminology and cues and are ready to work on expanding their vision of their songs. We will work on broader arrangements, duo work, medleys and much more. For this class the instrumentation will vary and include guitarists.
