Courses are relaxed and informal. The access levels are graduated and even beginners can enjoy the tuition. Profs and amateurs musicians will find something new to explore and learn in a different way.The Masters (who typically lend their work for free) teach in a very practical way. In particular, given the nature of popular music, the ability to read musical scores is not required.
The teachers are chosen among prominent figures and solid educational experience. Moreover they are good friends and friendly people. We expect the following workshops. For some of them we have already the name of the teachers, for all other please come back to these pages since we are going to update them soon .
