Camp Director: John Paul Velez
Grades 5 – 8
July 13 – 17
1:30 PM – 5:00 PM

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-afternoon 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.

Prerequisites
Students must have completed at least 2 years of private lessons on their instruments and have a level of proficiency to allow them to learn music with some independence.  Students must be entering grades 5 through 8 in the fall of 2015.  Students with some background or experience in jazz should sign up for Jazz Combo Boot Camp.

Location
Jazz Starters Camp will be held on the Westminster Choir College campus in Princeton Hall.

Schedule
Jazz Starters Camp will meet Monday through Friday from 1:30 – 5:00 PM. On the final day, the students will present a concert for their family and friends (time TBA).  Campers should wear their Conservatory T-shirts!
