Our workshops are among the most innovative and comprehensive music workshops in Upper Austria and are led by lecturers from Austria and New York. The opportunity for workshop participants to use the complete package consisting of workshops, evening concerts and subsequent jam sessions with the lecturers in a family atmosphere is an all-in experience in which joint leisure activities also ensure a good mood and the feel-good factor is not neglected.
In five days, less experienced and advanced workshop participants will experiment and fine-tune the playing skills and joy of playing the instrument as well as the concept and philosophy of improvised music found in most American music forms such as funk, rock, jazz, gospel and soul music. Whether on the instrument, in combos or as a vocalist - we play and explore the essential building blocks and progressive elements of these different musical genres with curiosity, fun and team spirit.

The workshop for instrumentalists
consists of 3 modules:

  • Boot Camp - for skill and technique, phrasing, groove, improvisation and expressiveness!
  • Combos - gain exciting practical experience with like-minded musicians and lecturers in combos of different styles and levels.
  • Musicians Talk - Arranging, composition, business of music and questions you’ve always wanted to ask professionals about everything to do with being a musician!
BOOT CAMP (Easy to Advanced)
Boot Camp is an exciting group lesson where saxophonists, trumpeters, trombonists, guitarists, pianists, bassists and drummers are among themselves with the corresponding lecturer. In the Boot Camp modules we experiment with exercises for technique, sound, improvisation, groove, rhythm, reading music and charts and playing in different styles of music, as well as soloistic expressiveness.
COMBOS (Easy to Advanced)
The combos are put together in the best possible way according to the level of the workshop participants and range from funk/rock, fusion, Latin to be-bop, modal jazz, a gospel/vocal ensemble and contemporary music ensemble.
Musicians Open Talks are a series of mini-masterclasses with various lecturers in a wide variety of fields, such as song writing, composition, arrangement, business of music, listening skills, improvisation, etc. be covered.
All instrumentalists can participate in these modules.
