The registration window for the Institut Jazz is open from December 15 2022 to February 15 2023.

Jazz (Instrument/Voice) pursues two objectives. On the one hand, students acquire the basics necessary to perform in public as well as the contextual knowledge to plan and deliver musical performances to a professional level.

On the other hand, students acquire the requisite skills to teach and communicate music to others, enabling them to become music educators who can guide others to jazz and music in general and offer professional, practical instrumental/vocal instruction at all Levels.

A stimulating environment that provided me with the space to develop as an artist.
