Celebrate International Jazz Day With Fem Belling!

In honour of International Jazz Day, we’ve asked vocalist, violinist and pickle-lover Fem Belling to create a masterclass in the art of ‘scatting’ and vocal improvisation. This crash course from the couch will teach you some of the basics of ‘scat’ vocals and guide you through your first 12 bar blues.

So, wherever you are, we invite you to free your voice and celebrate jazz music. Follow along with Fem via the link below and share your experience with us by posting your video and tagging @MIJF @fembelling and @intljazzday
