Jill said: “As I sit overlooking the Mediterranean en route for South America, the Caribbean and Asia I can only thank Sheridan Nicol and the fabulous Jazzartuk faculty for their dedicated professionalism and intensive training which gave me a realistic view of the profession I had chosen and the confidence to go out and compete at international level.

“I am visiting parts of the world I never thought I’d ever see, doing what I love and getting paid for it so I can thoroughly recommend Jazzart for their wonderful guidance and making my dreams come true.”

Jazzart UK director Sheridan Nicol said: “I am so proud of Jill and all she has achieved as a headline artist, we must be doing something right at JazzArt.”
