With the best gypsy jazz teachers and players such as Samson Schmitt, Fapy Lafertin, Fiona Monbet and Caroline Bugala, the Grappelli-Django Camp sells out each Summer.
Set up in 2010 by Tim Kliphuis and his colleagues Karin van Kooten (violin) and Reinier Voet (guitar), the camp welcomes participants from 25 different countries. It takes place the last weekend of August from Thursday to Sunday and is located 2 hours from Schiphol, in a beautiful old monastery in the middle of nowhere.
Grappelli-Django Camp features gypsy jazz star guest clinics, ensemble lessons, individual coaching, a teachers’ concert and jam sessions. The camp is open to those who play the violin, guitar, bass or other instruments at intermediate or advanced level, and improvisation levels vary from absolute beginner to advanced professionals.
