at the base of the festival
musical workshops are an integral part of the course. Much of the specificity of the Jam and the teaching you can receive is conveyed by these precise interventions and directly related to the theme of the festival.
Unlike other events, these are not “tasters” to make you want to, but classes as well as lindy courses.
Depending on your wish, you choose 1 to 2 musicality workshops each day, make your choice!
Some have limited places (like the music workshop, especially if you are a drummer or pianist), do not delay to register
