Erasmus+ Call for Traineeship

Siena Jazz – International Summer Workshop 2019

SJU – Siena Jazz University is Italy’s most prominent jazz program and worldwide recognized as one of the
most important jazz Institution. Beside the regular University jazz courses, the didactic, production and
research, one of the highlights of Siena Jazz activities is the “International Summer Workshop”.
Established in 1977, the Siena Jazz International Summer Workshop is a 2 weeks clinic focused on
improvisation and music ensemble, held by 32 different faculty coming from Italy, U.S. and Europe.
Students are coming from all around the 5 Continents and it involves each year many of the most famous
jazz musicians of the international scene.
The didactic during the day and the faculty concerts and jam session in the characteristic Senese Contradas
in the nights, the final 70 combo concerts of students together with teachers at the end of the first and second
week of classes, and the unique feeling of Siena’s artistic summer activities atmosphere, all this contributes
to create a very intense experience.

In summer 2019 the workshop will reach its 49th edition. In this framework we offer n. 2 traineeship position
to those students willing to join an unforgettable experience working together with a faculty made of
contemporary jazz heroes.
