Jazz Applications & Auditions 2022

Jazz Applications are now open. Closing date, 28 September.

It's free to audition and bursaries are available.

The first NYOS Jazz course was held in 1992, and ever since has been providing young instrumentalists in Scotland with unforgettable training and performance experiences. Today, NYOS has more opportunities than ever before for keen young musicians. To find out more about next year's programme highlights click here.

If you are interested in applying and are an instrumentalist or vocalist aged between 12 and 25 then NYOS would like to hear from you.

Complete one application form per instrument to be considered for all NYOS Jazz courses. Following your application, you will receive an automated email with instructions on how to submit your recorded audition. If you have not received this, please contact us. You may be asked to attend a 2nd stage audition which are held in November. After the 2nd stage auditions have completed, the result of which ensemble you have been placed in will be announced.

Auditions are free, with bursaries available for participants who find it difficult to meet the costs of course fees.

If anything is currently preventing you from applying to or auditioning for NYOS please do let us know. Whether it is lack of access to a musical instrument, a suitable device, or poor internet connection, we can help. We understand the obstacles young musicians may face and will endeavour to accommodate all applicants needs as best we can.
