Workshops available for February to May 2021 – Register now!


For instrumentalists, singers and bands with the jazz guitarist Martin Schaberl

After a longer break, they will be back in spring 2021: interactive workshops on topics that are essential for all instrumental musicians, singers and bands.
The contents form a solid basis for musical work. You will reach your goal faster, better and safer because you will learn to understand terms and musical contexts both theoretically and practically.
The participants also learn how to see and solve problems from others. Each workshop is self-contained. Since the topics are closely interwoven, it would be advisable to attend several workshops. Of course there are discounts for this.

Get to know each other better and talk shop? Maybe during the breaks between 13 and 15 o’clock at the voluntary lunch (which has to be paid extra). Younger participants are also welcome to bring their parents with them.

A hint: Register soon! Experience has shown that places are allocated quickly.

Location: Guitar Studio Graz
