Overview

Campers will learn the basics of jazz improvisation, music theory and jazz history before performing together in a public concert.

Since 2010, Calhoun Summer Jazz has offered a one-week intensive series of day-long classes, workshops and ensemble playing opportunities designed to provide high school students with an immersion in or introduction to the world of jazz improvisation and music.

Campers will form ensembles and learn the basics of jazz improvisation; explore jazz history by listening to significant recordings and viewing performances; learn fundamentals of music theory necessary for improvisation; and above all, get a chance to make music with other students. The workshop is open to players of all instruments and features accomplished instructors in keyboards, brass, woodwinds, strings, guitar, bass and percussion.
