    The experience


    Meet current student Jade Nye

    I’m currently in my third year of the Jazz & Improvisation stream of the University of Melbourne Bachelor of Music course majoring in saxophone. I feel this year has already provided the greatest artistic growth for me, and I recognise who I am as a creator and how I want to perform. In the first two years of my undergraduate degree I felt an expectation to intellectualise everything I played and composed, but I am only now realising that I don’t exactly fit the conventional mold.
