O’Higgins & Luft – Masterclass and Gig

LCCM invites its staff & students to our incredible event: ‘O’Higgins & Luft – Masterclass and Gig’!

Dave O’Higgins, as well as being a long standing tutor at LCCM, has released 21 solo albums to date, and is an internationally renowned jazz saxophonist who has toured and recorded with the Brubecks Play Brubeck, Jamie Cullum, Kyle Eastwood, BBC Radio Big Band, Ray Charles and the Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Orchestra. He is best known as a bandleader, composer, record producer and educator.

Guitarist Rob Luft co-leads this project. He is an exciting multiple award-winning firebrand blazing a trail at the forefront of the new generation of young jazz musicians.

Joining them are Scott Flanigan from Belfast on organ (also known for his own solo recordings) and American drummer, Rod Youngs (best known for his work with Gil Scott Heron).

The new CD “O’Higgins & Luft Play Monk & Trane” is just released on Ubuntu Music and has been play-listed on Jazz FM. The material is a personal take on themes played originally by Thelonious Monk and John Coltrane. 

This is an excellent opportunity for students aspiring to break into the music industry to develop music know-how and to see a live performance. Don’t miss this exciting evening on 22 November 2019 at LCCM’s Music Box Venue. The masterclass is from 5pm and Gig will begin at 7pm.

UCAS Extra Guide

Haven’t got a university place yet? No problem – you can now use UCAS Extra to apply for LCCM this year!

What is UCAS Extra?

UCAS Extra is available to anyone who has missed UCAS’ January application deadline, used up all five of their UCAS choices and not accepted a place. This could be because:

  • You are not holding any offers; or
  • You received offers, but changed your mind and decided the course wasn’t for you.

This gives you another opportunity to find a place on the desired course you’re looking for.

UCAS Extra will be available from 25 February until 30 June, so there’s plenty of time to make your choice and LCCM will be here to help you every step of the way.

How to apply through UCAS Extra

Check out the step-by-step guide below to understand the process of applying through UCAS Extra.  Still have questions? Contact us on 020 3535 1080 or at contact@lccm.org.uk for assistance.

UCAS Extra

What happens after you’ve applied through UCAS Extra?

After you apply and we have considered your application, you may receive a conditional or an unconditional offer from us. If you don’t receive an offer from us or choose to decline it, you can go on to make another UCAS Extra choice.

How many Extra choices can I make?

You can apply to one course at a time through Extra until you accept an offer or until time runs out. However, once you accept an offer, you won’t be able to apply to any more courses through Extra.

Can I change my personal statement?

You cannot apply with a different personal statement or references than the ones you have uploaded to your UCAS profile. You can contact your referees to ask them to update your references if necessary.

In addition, if you would like us to consider your application with a different personal statement, get in touch with us at contact@lccm.org.uk. Remember to include your UCAS application number in all correspondence with us – this will make sure that your revised personal statement will be matched to the correct application.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us with any problems, concerns or questions you may have. Our dedicated Programme Consultants will get in touch to talk about your application and guide you through the process.

Good luck!
