I have returned from London where I was teaching at the Global Music Foundation Jazz courses. The whole trip was amazing, London is a great city. I would love to recomand everyone interested in taking a jazz course in the future to have a look at the GMF website. The next course is in Germany this summer. They have many extraordinary elements such as samba classes, tai-chi classes included which make it very special. The choice of teachers is extraordinary, you get to be tutored by Bobby Watson, Perico Sambeat, Stephen Keogh and this kind of cats, amazing.
