About this Event


This summer again we are going to Tuscany for a week of song! Tuscany, home of rolling hills, historic villages, art, good food and good wine!

This week long intensive workshop will take place in Querceto (http://win.association-marcopolo.org/FR/9-Querceto/pag1.html), a beautiful hamlet perched along the slopes of Mount Aneo in the commune of Montecatini Val Di Cecina (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Montecatini_Val_di_Cecina).

The course consists of daily vocal and body training exercises, including dance, breath work, ear training, musical awareness activities (based on the work of John Stevens), improvisation, harmony and rhythm, scatting, confidence building and both group and an individual session of make up the week. All material is jazz-based.
