As an educator, Tippett has worked with junior schoolchildren in artist-in-education projects and in extended workshops with aspiring jazz musicians in Britain and other countries, including Germany, Italy, Soviet Georgia, and South Africa. He has been co-director of the Dartington International Summer School jazz course for the last decade, holds Honorary Fellowships at both Dartington College of Arts and the Welsh College of Music and Drama, where he is currently a visiting tutor in piano and improvisation and director of the College’s Jazz Ensemble. In the last two years he has given improvisation workshops at the University of Bristol Music Department and relaunched the Rare Music Club. Besides regular solo and small-group work, 2002 has seen the world premiere of Dance of the Dragonfly, commissioned and performed by percussion group Ensemble Bash, composer-in-residence on a new music course in Aldeburgh with Joanna Macgregor, and (following a Festival appearance in Victoriaville, Canada in May), a further performance in Lisbon, Portugal with his current twenty-one piece jazz orchestra Tapestry.
