DETAILS

The National Jazz Workshops bring New Zealand's enthusiastic jazz students together with top jazz musicians and educators, working on instrument techniques, improvisation, theory, listening and ensemble performances. Students 19 and under with at least one year of experience on an instrument, are eligible. Registrations will be accepted for the following instruments: trumpet, saxophone, trombone, piano, bass, guitar, drumset, vibraphone, clarinet, flute, or voice.

 

The Jazz Workshops are held at the New Zealand School of Music, on the Kelburn Campus of Victoria University of Wellington. Maps of the campus and applicable buildings are available on the New Zealand Jazz Workshops Facebook page. Please join that page for updates and to connect with other Workshops participants. 

 

ACCOMMODATION  

 

Students are responsible for their own accommodation. There are many options for accommodation close to the campus including hotels and backpackers. Several bus routes go from Central Wellington directly to the university campus. Students from outside Wellington often organize groups to travel and stay together and are accompanied by parent chaperones.

MEALS

 

The Workshops start daily at 9:00 am and are finished at 4:30 pm. Lunch for the five days is available for purchase at many convenient locations on campus or students can bring their own lunch.

EQUIPMENT

 

Drummers need to bring their own cymbals, sticks and hi-hat clutch. Drums and cymbal stands are provided.

 

Guitar and Bass players need instruments and cables. Amps are provided.

PERFORMANCE DRESS

 

On Friday, students perform in an evening concert where they'll need some appropriate concert dress clothes, usually all black.
