Traditional Jazz Workshop Lenk

Swing and groove under professional guidance

Jazz Workshop Lenk

The Traditional Jazz Workshop is geared towards musicians playing the trumpet, clarinet, saxophone, trombone, violin, piano, banjo, guitar, contrabass, tuba and drums as well as singers.

The traditional Jazz Workshop Lenk offers, in addition to the basic module instrument instruction for individuals and band training (practice-orientated intensive courses), a complementary range of optional subjects instructed by experienced, international teams.

The course deals with traditional Jazz styles (New Orleans, Dixieland Swing) as well as Mainstream and Bossa Nova. The practice-orientated intensive course is aimed at participants 15 years of age and older who have good instrumental and theoretical knowledge (rule of thumb: 4 years of instrument instruction). There is no entrance examination. The weekend course is an affiliated band tutorial for existing bands.

General requirements for participants:
- 15 year of age or older
- no beginners (at least 4 years of instrument instruction)
- elementary note reading and harmony skills are desired
- with or without band experience

This course is aimed at amateurs, advanced pupils, classical music educators, experienced Jazz musicians and other brass instrument musicians / brass bands.
