Making you an all-round musician and therefore ready for the music industry. The lessons are focused on developing skills in timing, reading and technique.

Finally, you will get practical guidance to turn your ambitions into initiatives, in other words, learn to do business in the music industry. The AMPA teaching team includes musicians with a rich experience in jazz and related styles, but above all, they inspire students to truly master their instrument as well as all relevant aspects of creating music.
