Sophie Bancroft - singer
"Somehow, being away from home frees you up from the usual hangups about your own playing and makes you more willing to experiment. I learnt a lot of important principles here that stay with me today. Burned into my memory are visions of late night jams and french wine."
Sophie Bancroft is highly respected both as a singer/performer and as a teacher. She has performed in major jazz festivals & clubs and toured France & Italy and been regularly broadcast on BBC Radio 2 and Radio Scotland.
"Sophie Bancroft has an impressive C.V. that covers jazz, pop and folk" Jazzwise Magazine.
She was appointed as Britain's first Jazz Education Development Officer and, as well as running her own vocal workshops and lessons, she has been jazz tutor at the City of Edinburgh Music School and the University of Strathclyde, amongst many others.
