The internship will take place at Neufchâteau
Monday to Friday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The students will approach together through play and experimentation the different elements specific to Django's music and to improvisation more generally: sound, time, harmony, repertoire, accompaniment, listening , looking for his place in a group.
• sound: how to learn to listen to yourself and develop techniques to tame the timbre of your instrument and bring out the warmest, widest, most incisive sound ... for accompaniment as well as for solo?
• time: what placement in time to play what rhythm?
• the repertoire: learning standards specific to Django's style with possible forays into other related music from the point of view of sound or harmony (eg Brazilian choro). • harmony: how to deepen your understanding / perception of chord movements?
• listening: improving one's awareness of one's own sound, that of others and of their integration. How do you learn to find your place in a group at a given moment? Being able to make choices, be present, gain self-confidence. All these subjects will be tested by active pedagogical methods (it is the student who does) in sometimes collective lessons, sometimes in pairs or trinomials (to be defined according to the number of registered and their level) but always based on the listening and research.
No music theory required
Have a minimum of experience with his instrument, advanced musicians also welcome. I have developed many methods to integrate different levels within the same course.
Welcome to all instruments but if it is not a guitar, contact the teacher beforehand to see how it can fit into the whole group.
