Unsere Vision - Our Vision

Berlin Academy of Improvisational Music (BAIM) proposes methods for professional as well as aspiring musicians & dancers to experience the art of improvisation. Performing world music musicians specialised in improvisation propose an accessible transcultural approach for all instrumentalists. Private and group sessions , as well as masterclasses are proposed during the year. Certificates can be obtained for musicians who intend to teach our method beyond Berlin. Concerts, weekly Discovery workshops (as of October 2017) and monthly Journey festivals (as of March 2018) will be organised in Berlin to promote the art of improvisation to wide audiences.

 

Die Berliner Akademie des Improvisationsmusik (BAIM) bietet verschiedene Techniken und Methoden, um die Kunst der Improvisation zu erfahren. Sowohl professionelle als auch aufstrebende Musiker*Innen und Tänzer*Innen stellen hierbei die Zielgruppe dar.

 

Aktive Weltmusiker, die in der Improvisationsmusik sehr erfahren sind, ermöglichen dabei einen kulturell übergreifenden Zugang für alle interessierten Musiker. Sowohl Einzel- und Gruppensitzungen als auch Meisterklassen werden angeboten.

 

Musiker, deren Absicht es ist, unsere Methode über die Grenzen Berlins hinaus selbst zu unterrichten, können die dazu nötigen Zertifikate erlangen. Um einen weitreichenden Publikumskreis anzusprechen, werden über das Jahr hinweg mehrere Konzerte und ein Festival (im Herbst 2017) veranstaltet.
