On 1st March 2010 history was made at Jazzworx! in Brisbane, when 30 new students officially began studying for their Bachelor of Music in Jazz Performance. It’s the first time the Bachelor has been offered anywhere in the county and when these students graduate they will be the very first to hold the degree from an Australian institution. In all, 40 budding musicians auditioned for a position in the new course, with only 30 places available. Jazzworx! Manager Greg Quigley said he was impressed with the quality of the auditions. “We would love to have accepted them all but unfortunately numbers were limited,” Greg said, “It goes to show that interest in jazz is alive and well in this state.”
