The main focus is to hone musical skills, connect with major music academies from all over the world, and perform. Advanced amateurs are also invited to attend the master classes.
Students of all levels are invited to participate in the workshops, which will help improve skills in jazz, composition, improvisation, and general musical knowledge. Workshop students are allowed to attend master classes free of charge but only as spectators.
