How Do I Get Started?

If you are interested, get in touch at limerickimprov@gmail.com or 086 602 5661.  We are happy to arrange a quick assessment where potential students give a short performance and/or discuss their musical experience with one of the teachers.  Our students come from a wide variety of musical backgrounds (rock, classical and trad) and previous jazz experience is not required.

The ensemble-based teaching environment is not suited to teaching people the basics of their instruments and is not for complete beginners.  However please come to an assessment night whatever your level of experience as we can point you in the right direction for individual tuition.  Our teachers also provide short group courses in Jazz Theory on a regular basis, which have been useful for both current and possible future students.

If the whole idea of this kind of experience sounds a bit intimidating it can be helpful to attend a rehearsal session as a visitor.  The environment is informal and relaxed – just let us know you’d like to attend.

Participation costs €15 per session (€10 for full time students and other concessions).  Payment is by installments of €100/€50, in advance.
