Summer Jazz Workshops

Our workshops have earned a reputation for producing the best intensive programs for learning jazz improvisation. Each Year, we assemble the nation’s leading educators and performers dedicated to providing an intensive learning experience for musicians of all ages and levels. Theory Classes, Ear Training, Combo Performance, and Master Class Sessions allow you the opportunity to grow and develop to your fullest potential.  Whether a beginning improviser or a seasoned pro, you’ll leave with tons of new and exciting ideas about how to improve your playing.

We welcome all instruments, including rhythm section, strings and vocalists and ALL LEVELS – from novice to pro!

Participants get master classes on their instruments, ear-training sessions, free concerts by the all-star faculty each night (we’ve been told these are worth the cost alone!), jazz theory classes (four levels, from beginning to advanced), and much more!  Of course, there are the all-important combo rehearsals, led by our instructors, where students are matched (via a private audition on Sunday) with others of the same ability.

Several of the most influential Jazz Educators have been instructors since the workshops’ inception including David Baker, Jerry Coker, and Dan Haerle. They will again be here this summer along with plenty of other faculty! Don’t miss out on this great opportunity to get real, practical, hands-on jazz instruction!
