The GJA Experience

Having a space dedicated to bass, to women, and it is located out of Goa, has been powerful. This class has moved me forward in my progress and given me access to different genres, including funk and Latin jazz. It’s helped me strengthen my weaker areas. Being in a group setting is also practical, seeing how other players interpret the music and apply the lessons. I greatly appreciate how pragmatic the training is: we’re given immediately applicable skills and approaches. The theory is involved as it should be: to drive the act of playing.

The eight-week programme taught me to listen to others, to give them space, to compete and collaborate. It didn’t just improve me as a musician, it improved me as a person

This has been a really fun and wholesome experience, it is bringing me closer to my musical ambitions. I found GJA randomly on the net and it has been the happiest surprise of my life!

The Course I Took

With the WIJ programme, I found the direction I was always looking for. I started feeling more comfortable with the fretboard and actually deriving joy out of playing. The best part is making small decisions in the choice of notes, it feels great to have this autonomy. What’s even better is that I’ve started feeling motivated to pursue music, unlike before, because of the perspective this course gave me towards not just the bass, but music in general.

I would highly recommend GJA to all the musicians out there. I Learned so much within a small span of 4 months then I did on my own from books. If you are an experienced musician(artist) and I looking for a place to start your journey in advance music theory or jazz this is the perfect place!!

The year end recital at GJA changed something for me. I feel like I have found a family and perfect music environment to learn and grow in. I am truly grateful to have you as a teacher and guide. You are just amazing! The way you hold space for everyone, the way you pulled off such an incredible show while always smiling is just incredible. I am feeling quite inspired after the show. Thank you so much again. 🤗🙃🙏🏽

Karan, who runs the academy, is without doubt one of the best teachers I’ve had in my life. The quality of education is excellent, and the environment is genuinely warm and welcoming. Whether you want to learn and instrument, music theory, or just drop in for a jam or workshop, this amazing academy is definitely worth a visit.

It’s been an incredible journey learning jazz bass at GJA, we learned how to create walking basslines and so much more in detail and in a really fun way, – I’m excited to learn more!
