Italian Jazz Accordion master heads up new post
Renzo Ruggieri announced this week that will be teacher of JAZZ ACCORDION (Masters Level) at the “Gaetano Braga” Conservatory of Teramo. Italy.
This is one of the first classes in the world at a conservatoire specifically for this discipline. Generally it is easier to find it included in World Music & Popular Music courses and never with a specific Jazz denomination
Anyone who knows Ruggieri knows that he has always spent a lot of time on this teaching. He has held many seminars, master classes in international conservatories, He has also published a lot of material and prepared students for competitions which they have gone on to win. He has also taught in special experimental courses in the following conservatoires: Gaetano Braga (Teramo), Stanislao Giacomantonio (Cosenza), Agostino Steffani (Castelfranco Veneto) and P.I. Tchaikovsky (Nocera Terinese). He was also the initiator of a petition for the cause.
Well done Renzo for achieving this for the Jazz Accordion, an instrument to which you have given all of your life.
The Conservatorio “Gaetano Braga”, TERAMO
