About Jazz Workshop: International Jazz Workshop Chodziez is open to all levels of students- from the Beginners to Advanced.
All participants should be able to read music and chord symbols, have a basic ability to play Blues and simple Jazz Standards. Instructions are given in the form of intensive daily instrumental classes, playing in combos and getting lessons in both Jazz Theory and Jazz Rhythm.
Big Band, as a form of an ensemble training, is put together every year from the participants being selected by the Big Band Director, and its repertoire ranges from the Big Band Classics to contemporary arrangements.
Every vocal class has its own Pianist and a Rhythm Section.
Jam Session will take place every evening, preceded by series of Mini-Concerts by the Faculty.
Each participant should bring his/her own instrument; some bass and guitar amplifiers as well as drum sets will be provided; drummers should bring their own cymbals, snare drums and both snare and cymbal stands.
There are acoustic pianos in the classrooms; however, some keyboards will also be available. Any keyboard player is welcome to bring his/her own keyboard!
