Cape Town International Jazz Festival 2010 (CTIJF) will offer something for everyone. The workshops can be attended for free
Leading musicians and lecturers both local and overseas will participate and present sessions for pre-schoolers, learners at primary and high schools, music students, up-and-coming and established musicians, or interested members of the general public.
The Music Business Workshop addresses the “heart of the matter’ and some of the survival strategies for the musical industry. It will also provide insight as to where the music industry opportunities still reside, and what it takes to stake a claim.
The session is titled “2010 – Shake and Wake time for the Music Industry’ and will take place on Saturday, 3 April at 12h15 – 13h45. The presenter is Graeme Gilfillan.
Master classes are offered on Saturday 3 April and Sunday 4 April and will be conducted by Rachelle Ferrell, Jeff Lorber, Michaela Rabitsch and Regina Carter.
These classes are offered to musicians and jazz lovers and are conducted by international artists performing at the Festival. The master classes will also be held at the New Space Theatre.
The five-day arts journalism workshop is already full booked. The Music Business workshop uses the preparations, concerts, workshops, master classes, conference and organisation of the CTIJF as a springboard for developing, or refreshing, high-quality reporting and writing.
The SAQA accredited Music Business workshop addresses the contemporary state of the music industry in both SA and the world.
