Sienna Jazz 2017 is happening!!!!
I’m honored to be part of an amazing group of artist that will form the faculty for the Sienna International Workshops 2017. It is going to be amazing : ) !.I’m looking forward to this…
The 47th year of Summer Workshop is devoted to making music, to sharing experience, to exchanging personal musical languages and to harmonizing cultures from different countries. Students from all five continents have for years now gathered at the Siena Jazz Seminars and have discovered their affinities while getting to know each other, playing music together, sharing their passion and love for jazz.
At the core of the learning process lies the gaining and sharing of experience. Each day students will work with two different ensemble music groups with different make-ups under the instruction of different teachers, and will further take part in two lessons of instrumental improvisation technique, these sessions, too, led by different teachers and composed of a maximum of 8 students.
