Students will learn through playing and experimenting the different elements of Django's music and improvisation in a more general way: sound, time, harmony, repertoire, accompaniment, listening, looking for one's place in a group.
Sound : how to learn to listen and develop techniques to tame the sound of his instrument and make out the hottest sound, the widest, the most incisive ... for the accompaniment as for the solo ?
The time : which placement in time to play what rhythm ?
The repertoire : learning of standards specific to the style of Django with possible incursions to other related music from the point of view of sound or harmony (eg the Brazilian choro).
Harmony : how to deepen one's understanding / perception of chord movements ?
Listening : improving one's awareness of one's own sound, that of others and their integration.
How to learn to find your place in a group at a given moment ? To be able to make choices, to be present, to gain self-confidence.
All these subjects will be experimented by methods of active pedagogy (it is the pupil doing), sometimes collective, sometimes in pairs or trinomials (to be defined according to the number of students 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 :
