Jazz

At the heart of all of our Jazz Programs is IMPROVISATION. Whether you are a novice or an advanced improviser, prepare to be inspired and motivated by our jazz faculty who are both performers and educators! Campers will be able to experience many different styles of jazz including Blues, Latin Jazz, Swing, and Jazz- Rock Fusion. You can also create your own style or arrangement in our composition classes!
