SYJO

Welcome to Strathclyde Youth Jazz 

SYJO, our flagship band is one of Europe’s top youth jazz orchestras and has long been the training ground for many of Scotland’s leading professional jazz musicians.

Based at the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow, we offer training and performance opportunities at all levels for young musicians and singers from across West of Scotland, aged 12 – 26 years. Our various bands, combos and classes meet weekly or bi-weekly throughout the school and uni/college year.
