THE DORDOGNE INTERNATIONAL JAZZ SUMMER SCHOOL 2015

The Dordogne Jazz Summer School is based at Chateau de Monteton, a real mediaeval castle, in south west France; and led by pianist and composer Andrea Vicari.
 
A week of total immersion in jazz and improvisation. An intensive musical language course in a supportive environment, with a lot of enthusiastic people at all levels. You may surprise yourself ....and it's fun !

Improvisation, jazz harmony, the exploration of various jazz idioms, and group performance will be the main areas covered. There are nightly organised jam sessions from 6.00pm and all-night jams after dinner in the Cave, plus free concerts by the tutors and other professional jazz musicians. At the end of the week the students perform to a live audience.
