Jazz Campus Mainz and Landesmusikakademie RLP become cooperation partners

The Landesmusikakademie Rheinland-Pfalz and the Jazz Campus Mainz are entering into a cooperation in the field of promoting young talent and offering general education in the jazz sector. The collaboration begins with this year's summer school program, which the LMAK organizes in close cooperation with the Jazz Campus Mainz at the HfM. From 2022, further formats in the field of music teacher training and further training for ambitious amateur and semi-professional musicians are planned. The cooperation creates valuable symbioses and a strengthening of the jazz scene in Rhineland-Palatinate on various levels, as well as strengthening the jazz and music teacher training profiles at the HfM Mainz and the LMAK RLP.


We extend the registration deadline for the "Summer School"-program. Interested teenagers and young adults who want to dive deeper into the jazz world and perhaps even want to prepare for an entrance exam can register for the Summer School until 01 August 2021. Here you can expect lessons in the masterclass principle, combo coaching, theory, ear training, jam sessions and more! Write us an e-mail to jazzcampus@uni-mainz.de
