James Morrison Academy Opens for 2017
The James Morrison Academy @ UniSA has re-opened for 2017. 88 students have arrived in Mount Gambier, South Australia to study jazz in Bachelor of Music, Honours or Masters of Teaching programs. In April, the Honours cohort will depart for three special projects in the USA with the Thelonious Monk Institute, the University of North Texas and the Juilliard School. The James Morrison Academy Jazz Orchestra will tour nationally and will welcome visiting US students from the Juilliard School in May. JMA students will experience world class teaching from faculty members including James himself, Mat Jodrell, Carl Mackey, Ross Irwin and visiting artists such as Gordon Goodwin and Wycliffe Gordon.
