International jazz pianist and composer Marco Marconi leads this course offering all instrumentalists the opportunity to play together some of the most beautiful American and South American songs composed between 1920 and 1940. During these two decades composers such as Gershwin, Porter, Rodgers, Hart, Waller, Reinhart, Ellington, Basie and many others wrote spectacular songs and music. Marco will talk about these composers and their compositions and demonstrate the diversity of styles between them. During the course Marco will first demonstrate playing the same tune in a variety of different styles (including the original) and give you the opportunity and satisfaction to explore these styles yourself and create something very exciting and new. Often the difference between these styles is very small so Marco will reveal some of the secrets that he has discovered during a long and in depth study of this kind of music.
