Read What The Faculty Are Saying About The Summer Jazz Workshops

Rich Armandi – “The chance to work side by side with such giants of Jazz like Rufus Reid and Jamey Aebersold is an unbelievable experience. The workshop is a week of total immersion in an art form we all truly love. Such an opportunity can and does change lives!!”

BASSDavid Friesen – “The Jamey Aebersold Jazz Workshop is designed with the intention to provide each individual jazz student the highest quality of instruction from full time jazz musicians who are internationally known having the ability to communicate their knowledge with the student, and full time jazz instructors from major Universities. The students will experience a week of learning new skills on his or her own instrument, how to improve their ensemble playing skills, having the opportunity to hear a variety of jazz concerts every day by major jazz artists, making new friends and establishing a basic foundation for their lives to continue the learning process and improvement as a jazz player.”
