Jazz Starters Camp for All Instruments

for Winds, Brass, and Percussion

Camp Director: John Paul Velez
Grades 5 – 8

NEW this year
Jazz Starters Camp is a great opportunity for children with no prior jazz experience who wish to explore how to play jazz on their instrument. Students will have small group lessons, as well as specialty classes in jazz history/theory and drumming. A mid-morning break time will allow the students to socialize and eat the snack that they have brought for the day.  Campers will have the opportunity to play for one another in an informal performance class and in the final camp recital.

Students must have completed at least 2 years of private lessons on their instruments and must be entering grades 5 through 8 in the fall of 2014.  Students with some background or experience in jazz should sign up for Jazz Combo Boot Camp.

Jazz Starters Camp will be held on the Westminster Choir College campus in Princeton Hall. Directions will be sent in the confirmation packet.

Jazz Starters Camp will meet Monday through Friday from 8:45 AM - 12:30 PM. On the final day, the concert will begin at 12:30 PM; campers should wear their Conservatory T-shirts!
