The International French Jazz Summer School 2020

Based in a stunning chateau in the South of France, the International French Jazz Summer School was founded by drummer and educational philospher Clive Fenner in 1995.

Our fantastic tutor team now with NEW TUTORS:

Liane Carroll, Julian Siegel, Simon Purcell, Loz Garratt (wk 1), James Maddren (wk2)

 

Both weeks of our course welcome instrumentalists and singers of all levels who want to deepen and develop their jazz skills. We also offer an Advanced Improvisers option during week 2 to meet the interests of more experienced folk.

Our experience, the inclusive and highly supportive ethos and the quality of our tutors – all top jazz musicians in their own fields – has made this one of the most popular jazz schools in the world. As well as plenty of small group playing, we have instrumental tutorials, coaching in rhythm, vocal and ear training, deep listening session as well as the nightly jazz club and jamming and a very popular end of week concert. There are also a few surpirse items!

Week 1 Saturday 8th - Saturday 15th

Week 2 Sunday 16th - 23rd August
