Tomorrow's Warriors: Nurturing the Future of Jazz

Tomorrow's Warriors : Cultiver le jazz de demain
A musical apprenticeship programme, Tomorrow's Warriors promotes greater diversity within the jazz scene, contributing to the emergence of a new generation of talent in the UK…

A diversified and inclusive scene

Co-founded in 1991 by Janine Irons and Gary Crosby, the association is committed to making jazz music accessible to all, by addressing in particular young people from ethnic minorities, women, and those whose financial situation might be an obstacle to learning or pursuing a musical career. This involves making the programme free, but also prospecting in the various communities of London.

Through classes, improvisation workshops and regular performance opportunities, the programme offers them a space for expression in which to gain confidence, grow as an artist and build lasting networks.

By creating a stimulating and cosmopolitan community, the association participates in the vitality of the English scene and has already brought out several big names in jazz such as saxophonist Shabaka Hutchings, the Kokoroko group or the Nérija collective.

A shared commitment

Maison SELMER is proud to collaborate with Tomorrow's Warriors through a new partnership sealed this year. The values ​​of the association echo the philosophy of the company, which has always strived to build privileged relationships with musicians. The full commitment of Gary Crosby, Janine Irons and their team, working with passion and close to the musicians, provides precious support to the artists and leads to remarkable results.

Their ethos is based on human relationships and sharing, and this is how Tomorrow's Warriors strives to reduce barriers in society. We are convinced that many talents will continue to emerge from these initiatives.
