Description

Summer Jazz Camp 2020


Registration open Feb 15 - April 30, space permiting

A joint program of Furman Music and the non-profit Greenville Jazz Collective, the camp is a unique experience designed to encourage high school students of all levels to fuel their jazz performance skills (current 6th and 7th grade students considered by recommendation). Students will take daily classes in jazz theory, improvisation, and jazz history, and perform in a big band and/or jazz combo. The camp includes evening faculty recitals, social events, group lessons, improvisation sessions and a final student concert, both of which are open to the public. Students of all instruments can apply, particularly those who play saxophone, trombone, trumpet, piano, guitar, bass (electric and/or acoustic), drums and voice.
