Fara Music Summer School, JULY 25st to 31th 2016
in collaboration with
The Collective School of Music

Sam Yahel is a hammond B-3 specialist and a keyboardist. Since moving to New York City in 1990, he has performed and recorded with a wide array of name musicians, including trumpeter Ryan Kisor, trombonist Wycliffe Gordon, guitarist Bill Frisell, saxophonist Joshua Redman, vocalist Madeleine Peyroux, funk legend Maceo Parker, and others. He has released a handful of albums under his own name, from 1998’s “Searchin’”, and albums in trio (Joshua Redman and Brian Blade), as “Truth and Beauty” in 2007. About him and this album, Brad Meldhau wrote “I came to New York in 1988 and Sam arrived two years later, so we really “grew up” musically together, and I had the opportunity to watch Sam develop his own sound […] The music here is not trying to be anything other than what it is, and this secure alignment of intent and actual creation – of truth and beauty – contributes to its aesthetic success”.

Specifically these courses aim to raise the quality of the teaching offer through the creation of small study groups which will be subdivided into three levels: High – Medium – Preparatory.
The number of participating students has been reduced to 70 musicians total in order for them to be supported thoroughly and so to give each one of them individually more space, both during lessons and during ensemble performances.
The in deep examination of all the possible practical aspects of musical training is the new route the Fara Music Clinics are taking.
The study of the single Instrument, the Ensemble Performances, the Trio Labs and the Workshops are the four basic elements of this newly structured study course.
