It's not surprising that the jazz music workshop in Piešťany has been named in honor of Jozef "Dodo" Šošoka, a renowned jazz musician, percussionist, and drummer. He founded and promoted jazz in Piešťany, bringing high-quality music from all around the world for several decades.
The primary aim of the music workshop project, which bears his name, is to carry forward the jazz tradition in Piešťany. It seeks to pass on this rich legacy to budding musicians and aid in creating a new generation of performers and creators.
Esteemed lecturers from renowned universities in Prague, Brno, and Budapest will oversee the teaching and ensure the quality of education. The program includes a wide range of music courses that employ sophisticated teaching methodologies to assist talented students in securing admission to prestigious foreign music schools or enhancing their existing musical knowledge and skills.
