TASF: Masterclass Storytelling and Jazz
Eran Har Even
Open and interactive music lesson with the focus on storytelling in music, improvised music and jazz
For this year’s open masterclass, we invited Eran Har Even to show us what is the role of storytelling and improvisation in music! For an hour, he will work with Aleksandrs Marinicevs, who is currently studying jazz guitar. You are invited to witness a process of creation that usually happens in the environment of a classroom.
For over a decade Eran has been a faculty member of the Conservatory of Amsterdam - teaching ear training, music theory, guitar and coaching ensembles - training the next generation of aspiring Jazz and Pop musicians. Besides, Eran is a guest teacher in music schools and jazz-seminars around the world, while performing regularly in the most renowned venues and festivals.
Eran’s work drew public - and media attention by its sui generis combination of styles and contemporary musical statements. Eran says about his music: “For me, music is like a conversation; in my compositions I compare the melody of my songs with a topic of a conversation… The solo section is where the discussion takes place… “
