Summer International Piano & Composition School
2019 saw the first year of Jazz piano and improvisation being included in the 4 day piano course.
This is a highly recommended summer course for pianists and composers and includes a wonderful selection of expert tutors.
This year I had the great honour and pleasure of working alongside: Michael Dolovich, Elena Zozina, Emre Oztek, Simon Lane, prof. Mikhail Kazakevich, Lora Dimitrova and Fred Scott.
Individual Lesson Plans
Because each student is different and Jazz & improvisation is all about the individual, so are your lessons. I create the material for each lesson, to be accessed via Google drive. This means that I can include text, music notation, audio and links and tailor each lesson to each student.
