The 2014 Jazz-MU-Tazz summer jazz camp is an opportunity for high school students to gain knowledge of the traditions of jazz and to learn about jazz style and improvisation, regardless of prior experience.
Throughout the week, students perform in big bands and combos while learning about jazz improvisation, jazz history, and jazz theory – all in a fun and comfortable learning environment.
We begin at 9:00 am on Monday, June 9, and complete the week with an
afternoon concert at 5p.m. on Saturday, June 14 at Pullman Square in
downtown Huntington, WV.
Come join us for what promises to be one of the highlights of the summer!
