After finishing her classical studies, violinist Karin van Kooten travelled Belgium and France to study jazz, specializing in gipsy jazz in particular and working with Didier Lockwood, among others. Her playing is as frisky as it is bold and provides the NSSQ with jazz and gypsy sounds. As a teacher, she’s been at the heart of the Grappelli-Django Camp alongside Tim Kliphuis since the start in 2010.

The workshops of Karin will cover essential improvisation topics such as harmony, jazz scales, timing and swing.
