Welcome to James Allen’s Saturday School for the Performing Arts
- home to South London Youth Orchestra
Jasspa is a school passionate about the performing arts. We offer specialist music tuition in a friendly and vibrant atmosphere on term time Saturdays in Dulwich. Pupils aged 6-18 can choose any combination of classes from a broad range of instrumental lessons, theory, ensembles and choirs including our new Community Choir for adults and pupils aged 14+.
Due to Covid we are pausing our Saturday Dance and Drama classes, instead offering a range of Dance and Drama holiday intensives with our wonderful team of tutors, starting this October.
Jasspa is also the home of South London Youth Orchestra – four orchestras from beginner to advanced level who meet for orchestral holiday courses three times a year. In the summer, winter and spring breaks 300+ music students from across London and the South East, come together to work with outstanding tutors and conductors from the profession.
All Saturday and Holiday courses take place at James Allen’s Girls’ School where we have full access to purpose built facilities including the Prissian Theatre, the Vaughan Williams Auditorium and Holst Hall.
Whilst Jasspa is an organisation with the community very much at its heart, we are also a centre of excellence. Quality performing arts education in a positive, nurturing environment is what we do best!
I look forward to welcoming you to Jasspa soon.
Beverly Sizer, Director
