What Our Students Say
Nana and Caryn’s jazz getaway in Bouros, Greece was a fabulous experience that I recommend highly for serious vocalists. We managed to practice, rehearse and prepare for a beautiful performance in a gorgeous castle in Karystos with a receptive audience while having our own relaxed beach front daily in a gorgeous sea.
The experience was unforgettable. Not to mention hanging out with awesome Jazz heroine, Jay Clayton. And the many wonderful vocalists who got to know each other in song and spirit. The cost was reasonable to boot. Nana and Caryn were awesome hosts . Well worth the money.
