Every day, you will make music during classroom instrument lessons and in ensembles/bands, and in the evenings there are additional theory lessons, workshops on related styles, free and guided jams.
You get a lot of new information and you make music for a week in a heterogeneous group, both in terms of instrumental make-up and age. Don't be put off if you don't think you are a star yet: we work on different levels!
From Funk to Soul, from Pop, Rock and Ballads to Latin American. There is no better experience than to work and jam intensively with other musicians for a week. You can share your passion with participants of all ages (from home and abroad).
Also this summer:
Theory at the piano (aka piano for non-pianists)
JamZ.Bond jam sessions
Experienced teachers coach you individually during group lessons. How do students experience such an intensive internship? Read the interview with six participants.
If you want to get a feel for the atmosphere already, you can watch the demo movie or the photos!

JamZ.Bond jam session or free jamming
During the instrumental lessons, improvisation, technique, solos, accompaniment, theory, interpretation and repertoire will be discussed.
Students should bring their own instruments and equipment!
Pianists: keyboard/electric piano with amplification and headphones for individual study moments
Vocalists: microphone with "light" vocal system or with amplification
Wind players: instrument
Guitarists: guitar with amplification
Bass players: bass guitar with amplification
Drummers: drum kit, mat to protect floor, sticks and brushes
Each course participant joins a band consisting of a rhythm section (synths/keys, guitar, bass and drums) supplemented by a wind player and vocals. You learn to use your techniques immediately in practice.
Bands are formed in various level groups. Each band is led by one of the teachers from the corps.
The composition of the bands is based on the level of the participants.
At the start of the instrument lessons, your level will be tested. It is therefore advisable to prepare one or more pieces. Your level will help determine which instrument group or combo you will be assigned to.
Musicians can best develop their talent by learning and making music in groups.
1 p.m.: group 1 (beginners) and 1:30 p.m.: group 2 (more advanced)
In this class series you will learn, with no prior knowledge and on the piano:
This class series was first organized in 2019, but due to Corona commitments in recent years, it was no longer feasible. Not completely new, then...
In this lesson series, we work on:
With all these classes comes a syllabus with the summary of the material and many additional course materials. You can also register for the evening classes only. Please note that places for these are limited.
Every night of the week, several classrooms remain open until midnight. You can then play free or supervised jam. In ever-changing line-ups, with fellow students or with teachers.
9 - 10 p.m.: for beginners
Based on our experience with the JamZ.Bond platform, we organize an evening jam where you know in advance which songs will be played. Indeed, we choose for you the right standards or songs and accompany you during this jam. From making an intro together, playing the theme, performing solos with the right accompaniment to playing at the right tempo and ending with an outro. Think of it as a "guided jam.
Would you rather play more freely? No problem, in several classrooms you can go for this, even until shortly before midnight!
Wednesday evening is the traditional final concert of the combos. Family, friends and acquaintances are welcome then. The concert begins promptly at 7:30 p.m., in Hall De Put, Destelheide.
Making music is a learning process. Because not everyone can study modern playing styles at music studios or music schools, it is difficult to establish a specific level. However, we provide various teachers per instrument subject, so that there is sufficient care for the different levels.
If you are still in doubt about your level, please contact: email@example.com
