Formation of Student Combos

On the first day, right after the short official opening, all students perform in a jam session setting, in order to form the combos. Since the level of playing of all students is high to very high, the main rule of forming the combos is the diversity of nationalities. At lunchtime, during a meeting with the teachers and the Artistic Director, the combos are formed. After lunchtime the first gathering of the combos take place.
 

Final Concerts:
presentation of the student combos

On the last two nights the student combos perform in a professional setting. Three combos per night play compositions and arrangements. Each combo has to come up with an original, ‘family-friendly’, names for that combo.
 

Ongoing Dialogues:
for teachers and representatives

In the afternoon on the first, second and third day, the Ongoing Dialogues take place. If you as a teacher or representative like to discuss a topic, present a paper, show a power-point, share an idea: please send a mail toThis email address is being protected from spambots.

The slogan of the IASJ: ‘world-wide organization for jazz, jazz education and jazz research’. The IASJ is working on publishing an IASJ Jazz Research Journal. Details are presented during the Ongoing Dialogues.
