Jazz Summer Academy in Paros
things going on all over Greece |

5-day intensive jazz course in English, for musicians and music students.

The first Jazz Summer Academy ever  held on Paros.

July 7 – 13, 2011

Details and philosophy of the jazz program:

“During this course, depending on your skill level, your goals and your time constraints, we will try to help you break it all down and raise the level of performance of each participant. We will try through our experience to face all the issues surrounding your interrogations in music. We will show you through different methods and examples how to transcribe, be disciplined and write for example your own exercises. We will try to teach you how and what to listen to in order to develop your ears. We will talk about time and energy and the importance of practicing slowly. By listening to other types of music, we will try to be imaginative, and by playing together we will try to simply have fun.”
