Sorry, this class is already full!
The aim of this class is to get to grips with the workings of the keyboard, instrumental techniques, musical theory and scales whilst reserving time for listening, arrangements and improvisation. The repertory is very free (folk, musette etc.) according to the musical aspirations of the class. Students are invited to work in groups in order to develop listening and playing skills.
Anne Niepold (1982) discovered the accordion at the age of 13. She studied with many teachers, including Bruno le Tron, Didier Laloy, Norbert Pignol, Stéphane Milleret & Philippe Thuriot. Gradually she left traditional music and developed her penchant for improvisation and jazz. That is how she continued with composition and jazz arrangement studies with Kris Defoort at the Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussel. In 2008 she was awarded the masters diploma and won the prestigious « Toots Thielemans Jazz Award ».
