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 work daily with a professional New York rhythm section. The small class size group size (max 12) means you will also a huge amount of one-on-one time with Daniel, working on key motions, 4-way independence, etc. See videos on the right for more details. The entire event culminates in a final concert, where you will receive a studio-quality recording and video of your performance with the band.

The 2024 European Jazz Intensive promises not only to bring the excitement of the New York jazz scene to Europe, but it will offer everyone the opportunity to immerse themselves in the beauty and culture of Germany’s historic Rhineland region. Cultural events include an opening night concert with Daniel and the trio in an underground wine cellar, a guided tour of the medieval city of Worms, and lunch at the legendary Wormser Hagenbräu on the shores of the Rhine river.
