This will be appropriate and interesting for all ages, and I believe it will contribute immensely toward nurturing "wonder" in your children and students. If you enroll, your child will get to participate alongside our jazz camp students!

dec 2, 2017 - peter slowik
We were EXTREMELY honored to host Peter Slowik (Chair of the String Department at Oberlin Conservatory) for our first ever Violin Masterclass! Profiled by the Strad magazine as “a man of limitless energy and purpose – he mentors high achievers who make their mark in top positions the world over,” Peter Slowik is one of the world’s most sought-after artist-teachers.
Four of our student violinists played for all of us, and Peter provided masterful instruction for each. This was a huge inspiration all of our students and parents present.
JULY 15, 2017 - fareed haque
It was an immense privilege (In conjunction with the JAZZUP FESTIVAL here in Glen Ellyn) to be able to host these masterclasses with Fareed Haque, now our 2nd year in a row!
He is truly one of the finest guitarists in the world right now (http://fareed.com/), and definitely one of Chicago's most important music educators. We at Bellas Artes love his heart for mentoring the next generation.
