After successful editions in 2009, 2010 and 2012, we are delighted to produce Air Time: Jazz CPD Scotland in 2014. The professional development scheme is for emerging creative jazz musicians living and working in Scotland, funded by Creative Scotland and Help Musicians UK. The scheme creates the environment and stimulus for participants to explore and consolidate the creative and business aspects of their careers.
The following five musicians have been selected to take part:
- Alan Benzie (piano)
- Lauren Sarah Hayes (piano and electronics)
- Sue McKenzie (saxophone)
- Phil O’Malley (trombone)
- Simon Thacker (guitar)
Air Time: Jazz CPD Scotland will include a five-day residential period in September, and a series of interviews, mentoring and future planning sessions to help develop their careers.
