Jazz Masterclass + Q&A Session (Nock/Stuart/Zwartz Trio)


ARIA-Award winning bassist Jonathan Zwartz and legendary drummer Hamish Stuart form one of Australia’s great jazz rhythm sections. In this special Make Music Day event, they join forces with luminary pianist and Bell Hall of Fame inductee Mike Nock ONZM for a fascinating masterclass that captures the excitement and immediacy of improvised music and showcases the brilliance and creative dexterity of this exceptional ensemble.

Collectively this jazz super group comprises the most sought-after and experienced players on the Australian scene, having won almost every possible jazz accolade and performing with a host of international giants, and Jonathan Zwartz is currently serving on the APRA Board of Directors. After the masterclass join in on an insightful Q&A session after the masterclass mediated by the Australian Institute of Music’s Greg Coffin.
