Jazz Guitar Workshop
Certaldo, Italy, 12–17 August 2007

Global Music Foundation is offering a rare opportunity to jazz guitarists this week in Certaldo.

World renowned guitarist Garrison Fewell will host a course of classes, workshops, and one to one sessions throughout the week.

This will run alongside the Tuscany Jazz Vocal Summer School in which there will be 35-40 singers from around the World, and with Rhythms of the World Series - Samba Workshop. As the percussionists train and learn the various different calls and rhythms, under the guidance of Felix Gibbons, the singers will learn the some of the traditional songs sung at the carnivals of Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paolo. On the last day of the course there will be an open air public performance during which we will bring the joy and the spirit of carnival to Certaldo. Every night at the jam sessions there will be opportunities to play Samba Cançao, jazz and latin music in a small group setting for vocalist, percussionists and guitarists alike.
