The GJA Experience
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
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!
