Overview

Joris Teepe and his colleagues are a faculty of seasoned professional musicians who have played with many of the greatest musicians in jazz. They are part of the rich musical community of New York City, the city that is the centre of the jazz world. This life experience and commitment directly effects how they teach; the ‘New York comes to Groningen’ program is a more pragmatic, performance oriented way of studying jazz than what is often taught at other conservatoires. This means that when you enter the conservatoire, you will be performing from the first day. The theory that you study is applied to real playing situations, and in general classes are focused on making you ready to play jazz on the highest professional level. Piano study, lessons in arranging and compositions all find quick applications in studio projects and student performances.

Career opportunities

Since you are trained to be a professional musician you are equipped to start a career, performing in various ensembles and in all styles of jazz. You know how to promote yourself and your group; you compose and arrange music for all kinds of ensembles and orchestras. You start teaching others at a music school or privately. Most graduates are self-employed, pursuing ‘portfolio careers’ that combine performance with teaching.
