Read what others are saying:
Jamey Aebersold is an enigma.
A jazz musician and educator of the first order—having produced 133 play-along recordings while overseeing the preeminent summer jazz camp for decades—he still runs havoc on the basketball court. He is also a staunch political activist, especially regarding the issues of smoking and gun control. And he’s funny, in The Far Side kind of way.
Moreover, Aebersold is a true philanthropist, having donated myriad jazz education materials to needy schools around the world. He has sponsored scholarships for deserving music students, and made contributions to the University of Louisville, home to the Jamey Aebersold Jazz Studies Program.
Our workshops really are for all ages.
Most summer jazz workshops are geared exclusively towards high school and college students. While our workshops are the perfect place for high school students, college prep and college students, we offer something other workshops don’t … a place for adults to either begin or continue their study of jazz.
Here are some interesting facts:
- About 2/3 of our participants are over 21 (21-88 years of age … yes 88!)
- About 1/3 of our participants are under 21 (14-21 years of age)
I’m 30, 40, 50, 60, 70 … 80 … is there really a place for me?

We are so excited to release these teaser videos about the Summer Jazz Workshops. In 2016, we were able to capture some amazing footage of our participants, faculty, and special guests thanks to an amazing job by Doug Normington at Normco Multi-Media. Doug was an absolute professional not only behind the camera, but orchestrating interviews and the resulting highlight reels will be viewed years to come. When Doug wasn’t busy filming during his 2 weeks at the workshops, he was participating as a Vibes player!
We feel these videos are an exciting representation of what you can expect when you attend the Jamey Aebersold Summer Jazz Workshops!
