Traditional Jazz Workshop Lenk

Swing and groove under professional guidance

The Traditional Jazz Workshop is aimed at musicians for trumpet, clarinet, saxophone, trombone, violin, piano, accordion, banjo, guitar, double bass, tuba, drums and vocals.

The Traditional Jazz Workshop Lenk offers practice-oriented intensive courses and is led by experienced and internationally active top musicians. The courses consist mainly of individual instrumental lessons and band training; in addition, there is a range of optional courses such as improvisation, harmony, ear training, rhythm, jazz singing for band musicians and a band tutorial that takes place separately from the main course.

The course focuses on traditional jazz styles (New Orleans, Dixieland, Swing) as well as mainstream and Bossa Nova. It is aimed at individual participants aged 15 and older with good instrumental and theoretical knowledge (rule of thumb: at least 4 years of lessons). There is no admission test.

General requirements for participation:
- 15 years and older
- no beginners on the instrument (at least 4 years of lessons)
- elementary music reading and harmony knowledge desirable
- with or without band experience

The courses are aimed at amateurs, advanced students, classical music teachers, experienced jazz players and musicians from brass bands.
