GMF LONDON JAZZ WORKSHOP AND MUSIC FESTIVAL AUGUST 17 - 21, 2016
PizzaExpress Jazz Club, 17–21 August 2016

Programme (provisional)

Some info about this course:

The course has more of an emphasis on playing and performance and there are opportunities each afternoon to do this at the Ensemble Master-class and at night during the extended Jam Sessions. While there are no instrumental classes, students will have a one - to - one lesson with the tutor of their particular instrument during the week. This gives the student the opportunity of having a lesson that is more focused on their individual needs. The vocalists will work in a group setting with Guillermo, and there will be one master-class with Rhythm section led by René Marie focusing on the lyric, "bringing the song to life"  and "connecting with the audience". 

Morning Sessions

"Whole group" sessions on Pulse & Polyrhythms / Vocal & Body / Samba and Latin 

Afternoon Sessions

Ensemble Master-classes

Students are formed into 3 different ensembles. Each day during this session the ensembles will work on, and develop pieces, for public performance on Sunday 21st. Feedback and constructive advice will be given by the tutors. The session will be staged in master-class format so that all participants can listen and benefit from the feedback and the experience. Each ensemble will play for 1 hour and then listen/observe for the rest of the period. These sessions open to course participants only. The final performance on the last day is a public concert.

Jam Sessions

Each night a late night jam session where students and tutors can come together and play, into the wee small hours, will take place. On Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday this will start at 11pm and on Friday and Saturday start time will be midnight.
