The seminars

The main characteristic and strength of the Roma jazz's cool seminars is the organization of instrument lectures in small classes from 5 to 6 students; the only way to consciously get in touch with the artists-teachers, avoiding overcrowding that leads to seminars of little didactic validity.


The participants

Students of high level (minimum 4 years of jazz study), medium level (minimum 3 years of jazz study) and basic (about 2 years of jazz study) can participate in the seminars of "Roma jazz's cool". Every day, 6 to 9 hours of instrument lessons, improvisation, ensemble music and trio workshops will be held at Saint Louis buildings in Rome.


The students of the course will be divided into three levels and will also have the opportunity to interact with the teachers of the other instruments in the music labs, in the trio workshops and in the afternoon Masters.



In addition to the instrument and ensemble music lessons, the "Trio Lab" lesson is inaugurated, 1h 30' per day in which the bass and drums students will play in trio formations with the pianists, while the guitar and piano students will play in a trio with a rhythm section.
