💥 June 9-12 "Under the Tuscan Sun" gypsy jazz camp http://www.darionapoli.com/under-the-tuscan-sun/
If you're serious about music and want to have an experience of a lifetime, join me at "Under the Tuscan Sun" gypsy jazz camp!
The mornings are dedicated to the individual instruments, guitars will work with myself, violinists with Eva, bassists with Manu. The focus will be the fundamentals, both specific to the instrument as well general to music and specific to jazz and gypsy jazz. Right hand, left hand technique, improvisation, phrasing, repertoire building, ear training, will all be the priority. Each instructor will tailor the exact activity based on the relative level of the students.
At the end of the morning session, students will be grouped into bands and a small repertoire will be decided with the instructors (2-4 tunes depending on the level of the group) and the afternoon will focus on set preparing, arrangements and focus on each students individual challenges relative to one or more aspects of the tunes.
The evenings will begin with the organized set in which all the bands will perform their set to get accustomed to playing under the relative pressure of a small audience, after which spontaneous jam sessions occur freely.
The following day all is repeated, again fundamentals in the morning, rehearsals and performance in the afternoon, but students are shuffled around into new formations as well as new repertoires.
