Workshops


Jazz Workshop

At the heart of the International Jazz-Werkstatt is the Jazz Workshop. Taught by renowned musicians, participants of all ages and abilities will acquire, expand and improve their skills in (jazz-oriented) musical improvisation together.

International Jazzwerkstatt 2019: Masterclasses mit Gilad Atzmon Masterclasses mit Randolph Matthews

The workshop day will start out with the "master classes" for all participants, followed by singing and instrumental lessons. In the afternoon, students and teachers focus on combo lessons. The vocalists among the participants may choose between being part of a combo or working with individual songs in a "vocal combo". In the evening, the teachers give a concert and then close the day with joint music sessions of students and teachers. On the last day of the event, students will perform in front of a larger audience.

Usually there are concerts in the evenings, which - due to corona - unfortunately have to be canceled. Instead, sessions and smaller * internal * concerts are planned, which we will make public as soon as possible on our youtube account International Jazzwerkstatt.

In addition to the musical instrument training, participants will play together in ensembles or sessions and: practice listening. Participants who want to learn about harmonies will also have the opportunity to master the most important fundamental principles of harmony in jazz music.

Timetable International Jazzwerkstatt 2020




General information:
Students are given 5-6 combos that rehearse in different rooms with different teachers. The teachers always work in a team. One of the combos works exclusively with singers. The groups are always <10.

Instead of the public concerts, students and teachers play music together (jam session) - a short lecturer concert (approx. 1 hour) forms the start. It is planned that each day be organized by a different lecturer.

Depending on the instrument that they play, the students are divided into small (st) groups, the lessons are given as individual lessons or (saxophone) in groups of 5 musicians:

  • 3 saxophone groups (Atzmon / Müller / Lakatos), these lecturers also teach the brass section
  • 2 singing teachers (Barbara Bürkle / Randolph Matthews)
  • 2 piano teachers (Thilo Wagner / John Turville)
  • 2 bass teachers (Yaron Stavi / Uli Glaszmann)
  • 1 drum teacher (Enzo Zirilli)
  • 1 drum & vibraphone teacher (Jim Hart)
  • 1 guitar teacher (Nicolas Meier)

For those interested, there is the opportunity to receive instruction on the basics of jazz from Claus Krisch between 2.30pm and 3.45pm: "Jazz in theory and practice" - introduction to the theoretical basics of jazz and practical exercises in rhythm, melody and harmony with and without instruments.
