CONTRABBASSO JAZZ – DCSL17
Authorized by the Italian Ministry of Education, University and Research
Jazz double bass, 2nd cycle Academic Diploma (Master level)
The 2nd cycle Jazz courses are personalized around each student, for the deepening of contemporary and experimental styles and languages and the development of one's own artistic personality with individual double bass jazz teachers. Ensembles aimed at both recording and concert artistic productions, in collaboration with internationally renowned jazz musicians, for insertion into the working circuit.
It is a limited students number course, open to a maximum of 5 students per year, coming from Saint Louis 1st Cycle Academic courses or selected through audition.
Path entirely oriented to the instrumental practice of Jazz in small, medium and large ensembles, with internationally renowned jazz musicians guests in the bands, both in concerts and in recording productions. Each postgraduate student will graduate having released his/her own original recording, distributed on streaming platforms.
The 2nd Cycle academic path includes two types of ensembles every year, a permanent ensemble that rehearses all year round and holds concerts in clubs in Rome with the teacher as part of the band and a great line-up that concentrates rehearsals in one or two full-immersion weeks for concerts in Theaters and recording productions with international guests.
- jazz artist and band leader of original projects
- jazz double bass player for live performances and recording sessions
