Zurich Jazz Talks #10

Daniel Schenker is co-leader of the Zurich Jazz Orchestra. He is also a lecturer for trumpet, music theory and ear training at the ZHdK. Today we talk to him about his work as a teacher.

Individuality is very important to Daniel Schenker when he teaches. “It takes patience. Tempos are different, every student is different. Tempo is individual, methodology is individual, didactics is individual.” Ear training has always fascinated him, so he developed the app “ET – Ear Trainer”, which offers corresponding exercises.
