Course description:

By jamming together, you can explore your musical possibilities and develop yourself in a playful way. We make sure that you feel comfortable and can develop without much self-criticism. You will receive supportive feedback and assistance. We will show you proven concepts to successfully master musical challenges of all kinds (development of a repertoire, stylistics, solos, improvising,…).
Adapted to your previous knowledge and needs, we create an efficient, individual exercise plan for you in order to get the best out of you in a short time.
In order to prepare you optimally for pressure situations, we simulate exam situations and show you what examination boards attach particular importance to. In addition, we will introduce you to our concept against stage fright and support you throughout the entire process as a mentor.

You want to feel confident and inspired while playing to get to the next level?
