Athena Perantinou and Arts Culture Europe are presenting the 3rd edition of the International Jazz Academy and Festival to be held in the wonderful setting of the traditional village of Lefkes on Paros, from July 19 to July 26, 2013.
The organization of the event is a collaboration between Athena Perantinou the co-founder and Director of Paros Jazz Academy and Jazz in Paros Festival and Marc Buronfosse, musician / teacher at the Paris National Conservatory of Region - artistic director of the Paros Jazz Academy & Festival and Arts Culture Europe, a nonprofit organization for the promotion of music and arts in Europe.
The Paros Jazz Academy consists of a team of experienced teachers and artists all with international backgrounds that will be sharing their knowledge and passion for music with students from around the world.
The duration of the academy is five intensive days of jazz lessons and is catering for the needs of musicians and singers with some experience in the genre, who would like to deepen their knowledge and understanding of Jazz, as well as improve their technical aptitude and skills under the guidance of professional musicians and experienced teachers.
Daily lessons will include seminars on the use of musical instruments (electric and acoustic bass, saxophone, piano, trumpet, harp and drums), vocal lessons, group and workshop sessions.
The Academy provides a holistic approach to music, therefore every morning in open air, an hour is dedicated to Qi Gong, a warm up in the style of the Shaolin monks from South China, to strengthen the muscles of the body with relaxation of the ligaments which is also associated to working on concentration.
All students have the opportunity also to practice in Jam sessions, organized in the evenings at the Albatross Hotel.
