Gypsy Jazz Workshop with violinist Tim Kliphuis
Dutch violinist Tim Kliphuis is a gypsy jazz legend. A faculty member of the Amsterdam Conservancy, he is renowned for mixing gypsy jazz with classical and folk music. Tim is widely known from his many recordings and tours with the top European gypsy guitarists, such as Fapy Lafertin, The Rosenberg Trio, Angelo Debarre, Samson Schmitt and many others. He also is a frequent visitor to the States, with headline performances at all the major gypsy jazz festivals.
Mr. Klihpuis will lead an enlightening two-hour workshop on April 10th 2018 from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. in Gainesville, Florida. During this workshop, Tim will introduce you to the exciting gypsy jazz style of violinist Stéphane Grappelli (he is the best-known of Grappellis students) and guitarist Django Reinhardt. Subjects will include jazz improvisation and stylistic tips - such as slides, blue notes, and syncopated jazz rhythms - taught in the context of learning popular and illustrative standards, such as Coquette and Minor Swing.
Players of all string instruments are welcome! Good command of the first position is recommended, but no improvisation experience is necessary. By working with everyone on their individual level, Tim and his brilliant teaching are guaranteed to inspire and spirit you along the road to being a gypsy jazz player.
This is an exceptional opportunity for north-Florida string musicians to explore this rich genre of string music under the guidance of one of its most acclaimed performers and dedicated teachers.
