Summer Courses 2023

Cool courses... good teachers and much more. A student says: "The teachers? They are very open. You can ask them anything. Look, an arrogant teacher would not be a good teacher. A good teacher should not show you what he can do, he should improve what you can't do yet. And it's good to get different views."
Also this summer during our jazz course and pop week: Theory at the Piano / Composition & Songwriting / JamZ.Bond jam sessions

JamZ.BOND

Last year we launched JamZ.Bond, the ultimate platform where music lovers and musicians come together to bond through the power of music!

We are happy to invite you to the season premiere of JamZ.Bond, a unique and fun jamming experience, on Thursday, October 12 at 8 pm @Bar Lume, Vrijdagmarkt 33 Ghent.

Registration can be done via jamz.bond and you can participate in a maximum of 3 songs.

We understand how important it is to forge bonds and create unforgettable memories through the power of music. That's why we created this platform where people from all over Belgium and beyond can come together to share their love for music and collaborate in improvised jam sessions - live.

What our participants say about our summer camps and music educational programs

Richard, a guitarist at the Pop Clinic: last year he was here too, at the Pop Clinic. His guitar teacher had taught there and told him that this was really something for him. "I had no idea what the level would be here. Then it turned out that there were some very good musicians. It turned out to be a great success. That's why I'm here again."
Lieven, a pianist from the Pop Clinic, puts it this way: "I was interested in playing in a group and so I started looking at the possibility of a music camp. I had the choice between jazz and pop. I have no emotional attachment to jazz, so I chose the pop clinic. It was the first time I had been on such a music course. This student especially appreciates the listening ear of the teachers: "You can just talk to them about music and about the life of a musician. And these are people who are not only famous in Belgium. That they want to be involved with 'losers like us'..." It's just like being a football player at FC Borsbeek and then being allowed to play a match at Anderlecht...".
A piano teacher at Jazz Camp: "What motivates me is that it's so nice to hang out with people here for a week and be involved with music. Even with people who don't necessarily have professional ambitions, but who are very receptive and willing to be immersed in this for a week."
