The Czech Jazz Workshop

is a seven-day international intensive jazz course intended for all musicians, whether they be beginners or advanced players, that want to get inspiration, improve their instrumental, vocal and improvisatory abilities and will appreciate meeting other students and top musicians.

The system of teaching is aimed both at acquiring theoretical knowledge and at getting to use practically whilst playing in the ensembles. During the morning instrumental and vocal lessons, the following instrumental courses are offered: saxophone, trombone, trumet, flute, vocals, piano, guitar, double bass, bass guitar and drums. In the afternoon ensemble classes, the students are divided into bands in which they are led by a lecturer to choose a repertoir and practice playing together and communicating within the band. All of this is then put into practice at the evening jam sessions and final concert.
