NYJOS, NYJOS, Where are the forms for next year?

So I haven't posted anything on here for a while. I do apologise, this past week has been hectic as I'll explain here. If you watch my YouTube videos (one of them is above this text) you will have seen a vlog I edited of my time at the NYJOS Summer School 2012. I had such an amazing time, it was great as it was the 20th Anniversary of the group. As you can tell with the background to this blog, I play the saxophone. And I've always been a lover of jazz music and have always wanted to learn more about it, especially as my teacher specialises in classical/exam pieces. He recommended this course to me last year and of course I jumped at it. So my first year was last year where it was held at Strathallan and it was incredible. I met so many people there from all over Scotland who also had a love of jazz and had the opportunity to learn how to play amazing music and make lifelong friends. So this year, it was great to see some of these people again but also to see some new faces and make even more new friends. Yes the course is pretty pricey and some people can't afford it, I mean £330 is an awful lot of money, but the amount you learn and the experience you get is second to none so if you play a jazz instrument and live in Scotland, you have to go to the NYJOS Summer School, I'm now ordering you to go. And who knows, if I save enough money next year, maybe you might see me there. Now that would be funny. :) And to finish that post, here's how we spent our time in our combo room. :D
