Tak Brzmi Miasto showcase conference (“Hear the City”) is the innovative boutique polish conference and festival for the music industry. This year edition will be held on 17-18 November 2018 in Cracow, Poland. It’s main theme this year is “education” and it will present an innovative approach both for formally educated and self-taught musicians.

What does the education already have and what does it need? How the best teachers teach? How to practice and progress? Can jazz and rock be taught at school? How to get a scholarship on a prestigious university? How to promote your band?

On 17-18 November 2018, in Cracow, you will hear those questions answered by musicians, educators and music industry professionals from Poland, Europe and the USA. Apart from panel discussions and lectures, workshops will be held covering instrumental proficiency, songwriting, vocal and extreme vocal techniques such as growl and scream. The best electronic music professionals will be there, too.

The panelists and tutors include such names as: Michał Urbaniak (renowned jazz musician), Melissa Cross (vocal coach for bands such as Slayer), Joe Hubbard (renowned educator), Erik Nielsen (Elton John Rocket Music), Magdalena Sobczak-Kotnarowska (Kapela ze Wsi Warszawa), Spisek Jednego (EABS, Paulina Przybysz), Wojtek Urbański (Rysy), Steve Nash (world champion of International DJ Association) and more.

We are aware that education starts very early. That’s why we also invited parents and children. Workshops for children will be organized by Anna Weber, an author of an innovative education method Pomelody.

The conference is accompanied by a showcase festival where we present to the guests and delegates from all over the world, young, promsing bands. This year the line-up include Rycerzyki, Besides, Hyper Son, Neal Cassady, Transmission Zero, Samurai Cop, Kirszenbaum, Edyta Górecka and Kraków Street Band..
