Tim Leah Memorial Scholarship

JazzWorks’ Tim Leah Memorial Scholarship

JazzWorks, in conjunction with MusicFest Canada, provides the full tuition Tim Leah Memorial Scholarship to its annual summer Jazz Camp, to be awarded to an outstanding jazz drummer participating in the national festival.  The scholarship must be used in the year awarded and is intended for promising secondary and post-secondary students of jazz.

Tim Leah (1948 – 2022) served as President of JazzWorks Canada between 2014 and 2019, after which he continued as an active volunteer. Tim played drums with numerous jazz combos until the late Fall of 2021.  He was also the co-founder and long-term drummer for Barry and the Blasters, an Ottawa-based Blues band.
