THE JAM MUSIC LAB UNIVERSITY

Located in one of Europe's most beautiful and musically-rich cities, Jam Music Lab proudly celebrates its newly-attained University status. It is now a fully accredited academic institute.

The University specializes in jazz and popular music, with an emphasis on practical experience and employment opportunities. Students benefit from educational guidance in professional environments.

Situated in the 11th district of Simmering, an urban and culturally diverse district of Vienna, Austria, the Jam Music Lab University is housed at an architectural landmark known as the Gasometer. There are four former storage tanks called Gasometers - all built in 1899 - that served as the monarchy's major energy provider.

The city of Vienna remodeled and revitalized the protected monuments, resulting in Gasometer Music City, now a flourishing university campus covering 11,000 m2.

Besides Jam Music Lab University, this campus features a performance hall (seating 2000-3000), music retailers, student dormitory and music-related annexes for students of various ages. A host of pedagogical collaborations are available. Gasometer Music City has its own subway station. Vienna's center is only a short ride away.

Throughout the city, concert venues and stages offer everything from classical to jazz to progressive music. The Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, the Radio Symphony Orchestra and other internationally renowned ensembles call Vienna their home. The University utilizes this tight network of contacts, partnering with club owners, presenters and festivals - among them, the acclaimed JAZZFEST Wien. Professors and students are routinely invited to perform and to demonstrate their skills.

The JMLU faculty:
• International, first-rate professors, who work extensively in their fields of expertise, including Grammy-award-winning musicians and producers.
• Renowned guest authorities, including Bill Dobbins, Director of the U.S.'s famed Eastman School, leading workshops, seminars and master classes.

JMLU emphasizes these tracks:
Music Performance aims at instrumental, vocal, compositional and musical proficiency at a high level.
Music Pedagogy provides insights to the methods and principles of music instruction.
Media Music teaches film scoring, and music production for film, theatre, commercial production and video games.

JMLU offers these degrees:
• Bachelor of Arts, Music (4 years)
• Bachelor of Arts, Music Education (4 years)
• Master of Arts, Music (2 years)
• Master of Arts, Music Education (2 years)

JMLU understands the importance of integrating real-world experience with academic training. By teaching the business of music, students build and develop careers. "We are located in the city of music," explains Marcus Ratka, Director of JMLU. "Vienna's high culture is of major importance to people's daily lives. Artists and musicians are well regarded, and a healthy music scene creates work by demand. We aim to equip our students, so they can fulfill their promise."

Courses are held in German and English. Skills in both languages are desirable. Bachelor & Master Studies begin in September 2017. Video submissions are possible for applicants not residing in Austria:

"SPHERES OF A GENIUS" 100 YEARS OF THELONIOUS MONK

To honor the centennial of Thelonious Monk, the great American jazz pianist-composer, JMLU has created "Spheres of a Genius," an international competition dedicated to composition.

In a resounding show of support, over 100 submissions have been received from around the world.

"Monk´s music has opened doors to new sounds, structures and ways of creating music," says organizer Marcus Ratka. "He raised awareness for the charming beauty of dissonance and contradictions in the arts."

The competition aims to:
• Reflect the spirit of Thelonious Monk from a contemporary perspective
• Inspire innovation and originality
• Provide a platform for the interrelationship of composed and improvised forms
• Encourage the exploration of large-scale interactions, vis-a-vis the Vienna Radio Symphony Orchestra, which will premier the winning composition in the historic Golden Hall, July 7, 2018.

The concert will be broadcast as part of the Ö1 radio program. The winner receives € 5.000. First runner-up receives € 3.000. Second runner-up gets € 2.000.

The Jury will consist of experts in the field - representatives of the Vienna Radio Symphony Orchestra, Jam Music Lab University and international authorities. www.spheresofagenius.com
