Jazz Program

Our jazz program gives interested campers a chance to explore their jazz education through full jazz ensembles, small combos, improvisation, theory/history classes, and private lessons. All of these classes, plus the performance opportunities available each week (and don’t forget informal jam sessions!), give our jazz players a chance to develop their own playing and their understanding of jazz styles & techniques.

Lower Camp Jazz Band is open to all lower campers who would like to participate in a jazz ensemble.

​Lab Jazz Band is for upper camp instrumentalists with no prior jazz experience who are interested in getting a start in the jazz realm.

​Crimson Jazz Band is open to more advanced players who have better sight reading and improvisational skills.

Small combos are put together by level and work on reading & improvising on standard jazz tunes.
