Richard Michael Jazz Summer Course

We regret that the Richard Michael Jazz Summer Course 2020 has been cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  We are already exploring likely dates for 2021 and will make these available as soon as possible.  


The next Richard Michael Jazz Summer Course will take place from Friday 7th to Wednesday 12th August 2020 in Strathallan School, Forgandenny, a few miles outside the ‘fair city’ of Perth, Scotland.

Full information about the 2020 course, including costs and booking form, can be found at

The Richard Michael Jazz Summer Course is the successor of the highly successful Fife Summer Jazz Course, which ran for over three decades under the leadership of acclaimed jazz pianist and educator Richard Michael BEM. After 2013 Fife Council were no longer able to support the course, and it was taken over by East of Scotland Jazz Education, a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation (Charity Number SC045686) which promotes educational opportunities for musicians of all levels, instruments and ages.
