Jazzed Magazine • News • June 18, 2015

CONSORTIUMAMSTERDAMThe International Jazz Summer Workshop at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam, the Netherlands, in conjunction with the Manhattan School of Music, NY, is a unique and innovative program in jazz studies. For the first time the two traditional majors of performance and composition are combined with training in improvisation and pedagogy to create a totally new major area of jazz study.

Participants in the Summer Jazz Workshop program not only benefit from an innovative and comprehensive curriculum but also from direct access to the most advanced and current musical styles and trends emanating from a major urban artistic community. In addition to performances, sessions, and master classes under the direction of established master artists, the Workshop also provides performing experience at jazz venues all over town, like the famous BIMHUIS and the North Sea Jazz Festival.

The Keep an Eye Foundation offers scholarships, housing, and travel assistance to a few promising students.
