ABOUT WORKSHOP JAZZINTY 2022 (15.—20. 8. 2022)

Jazzinty is evolving into a whole-year event, continuing to strive towards the world trends in music and supporting Slovenian musicians in year 2022. The workshop will continue its “artist in residence” program, bringing the world-known guitarist Lionel Loueke, a member of the legendary Herbie Hancock Group to Novo mesto, made possible through our collaboration with Jazzcampus program from Basel, Switzerland. The workshop faculty members are leading members of the new wave in jazz music. With this year’s theme: the sound of youth and future, the teachers will present their unlimited creative potential, the use of technology in music and the sound of today. 

Workshop Jazzinty is a one-week intense musical education course open for anyone, who is interested in improvised and jazz music, no matter what your instrument or level of education is. We require a basic understanding of your instrument, whereas a past experience in jazz or improvised music isn’t necessary. The workshop is annually attended by 100 participants, coming from all across Europe, USA, even Indonesia, Korea and Africa. We differ from other music workshops with these important concepts:

  • the categories are led by systematically selected mentors, internationally renowned teachers and active musicians, who come from different European universities and the vibrant New York scene.
  • The intense, one-week educational module on the highest level is being taught from basic, intermediate and advanced levels with a focus on individualism and stimulating a personal voice.
  • The participants have a unique opportunity of playing in international combo ensembles, which are organized before the start of the workshop by analyzing your reference videos. Playing music with musical colleagues from all around the world is a priceless experience for any young musicians.
  • The networking, which happens through relaxed and informal meetings among mentors, students, audiences and journalists is always vibrant and bears creative fruit. Jazzinty is often the beginning of a new musical project, a new ensemble, a new international cooperation or a first-hand look into studying jazz abroad.
  • Jazzinty has a rich, 20-year old tradition of organizing, which is shown in our past educational programs, concert events and our professional infrastructure and technical capacities.

DOMEN BOHTE & ANA ČOP: Introductory lecture // Monday, 16th August, 10.00 - 11.00, Kulturni center Janeza Trdine

Monday’s introductory lecture is mainly a meet and greet for all the mentors and the students. Ana and Domen will present this year’s edition of the workshop and festival and give students more detailed information about the schedule and exact locations of the events. At the lecture, you will meet your mentors and find out which combo group you are in, so the participation is recommended.



Combo ensembles

All the participants are placed into different combo ensembles, where they will rehearse the repertoire for the Saturday’s participant’s concert. The rehearsals take place in the music school and are assembled after analyzing the participants reference videos. The combo ensembles are led by mentors of the workshop and focus on each mentor’s original music and their personal style. 


The afternoon part of the educational process begins with group lectures about different musical thematics. This year’s lectures will focus on the theme of the production - technology in music. The lectures will cover a wide array of topics, ranging from the use of technology in music, electronic influences in jazz music, digital media, composition, arranging, etc.

Individual and group mentor lessons

The mentor lessons take place in the afternoon in the music school. Every participant has individual or group lessons with his mentor of choice. The small groups are assembled by the mentor on the first day, focusing on the participants level or style of playing and the capacity of the individual category.

Jam sessions

The integral part of the education process are the evening jam sessions. The stage is ready and set for playing after 10 pm every night in the Cultural center. The participants can play and improvise with their colleagues, mentors and other guests.

Festival concerts

In the same week, the  workshop will be accompanied by a jazz festival, the programme of which will include concerts by the most prominent representatives of the contemporary Slovenian, European and world jazz platform. This year's festival will be marked by the sound of youth and future.
