School for Improvisational Music
NYC Summer Intensive DATE TBD
Since 2001, SIM has held over 20 intensive workshop sessions for more than 800 aspiring students of creative music from all over the globe, led by a cross-section of the most creative improvisers from the jazz and contemporary music fields.
The summer intensive at the Brooklyn Conservatory will include 2 masterclasses per day, 2 private lessons per week with instruction on any musical topic, ensemble coaching, and
student and faculty performances. The SIM
experience is less about teaching through the lens of style and more about the overarching
concepts of improvisation, touching on multiple disciplines.
