2020 European Jazz Intensive

We are thrilled to announce that Daniel will be bringing his highly successful Jazz Intensive program to EUROPE for the first time. The inaugural Daniel Glass European Jazz Intensive will be held April 14-18, 2020, at the Groovekiste Drum Academy, situated in the heart of the stunning German Rhineland region. For the complete details, we invite you to check out the Full Event Itinerary as well as the Official One Sheet, which includes information on transportation, lodging, and all events.

DESCRIPTION: For five days and four nights, master drummer, author, historian and educator Daniel Glass (along with his New York trio) will lead participants through an exciting, in-depth exploration of jazz drumming in all its facets. In addition to an intensive course of study, you will have the chance to jam and perform with a professional New York rhythm section, culminating in a final concert that will provide you with a studio-quality recording and video of your performance with the band.

The 2020 European Jazz Intensive promises not only to bring the excitement of the New York jazz scene to Europe, but it will offer participants the opportunity to immerse themselves in the beauty and culture of Germany’s historic Rhineland region. The stunning medieval city of Worms will host our opening night concert. We’ll also be treated to guided tours of Worms and Osthofen, have a chance to sample one of the Rhineland’s best wineries, and visit the studio of master drum builder Boris Ritscher.
