Focusyear Basel

Organization Musik Akademie Basel - Jazzcampus
Deadline December 31, 2022

Focusyear is a one-year program for an internationally assembled ensemble of nine students, who will be coached in a regular cycle by acknowledged masters of the international Jazz scene.

The students selected for Focusyear receive a full scholarship covering tuition and the cost of living, in order to allow them to focus on music exclusively.

Over the course of the year, the ensemble creates concert programs and records an album, which will be produced in the school’s own recording studio. The band will perform regularly in the school’s Jazzcampus Club. The band is also playing selected concerts during the year.

— The Focusyear Auditions will be held on March 10 – 12, 2023.

— Applicants should be aware that the Focusyear is a one-year engagement, September-July, which takes priority over other musical activities.

— Focusyear does not set a minimum or maximum age limit and admits students of any nationality.

— Please be aware that we are looking for a level of musicianship that is comparable to master students or above. This program is also intended for professional musicians who want to refocus their own musical scene.

— Deadline for Applications is December 31, 2022.
