About Loire Music

Loire Music organisesĀ  summer schools, music courses and events in France and the UK. With an experienced team of highly skilled music professionals, we run courses that aim to be relevant and inspirational whatever your level of ability.

The first Loire vocal jazz summer school, organised by Tristan Mailliot, took place in August 2004 at the Domaine de Bel Air, France, with Anita Wardell and Tina May as vocal tutors.

Since then the range of courses and number of tutors has steadily expanded. We have organised jazz piano trio workshops, many summer schools at the Domaine de Bel Air in France, a jazz drum course and vocal jazz workshops in London, at the Vortex jazz club and the Warrington Hotel, and in Newcastle.

The Summer School is now in it’s 15th year and encompasses both vocalists and instrumentalists.

Loire Music also participated in theĀ  Songsuite Vocal Festival in 2013, 14 and 15 in collaboration with Anita Wardell and Tomaz Furmanek.
