JAZZ-MU-TAZZ

Virtual Jazz Camp

Jazz-MU-Tazz jazz camp is typically a six-day, five-night camp is an immersive experience for rising high school freshman through seniors to learn about jazz improvisation and traditions of the jazz idiom. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and safety guidelines, the camp will not be able to meet in the traditional way this summer. Instead, the Marshall University Jazz Studies Program would like to offer a free Virtual Jazz Camp that will be open to all music students ages 13-adult, and will also be open to their music teachers and band directors.

The virtual sessions will be offered Monday, June 8 through Friday, June 12 beginning at 1pm (EST) and will be live streamed through the Marshall University Jazz Facebook page.

A different topic will be addressed each day, including jazz improvisation, jazz theory, listening skills, and instrument/section master classes by members of our world class MU Jazz Faculty.

Even though the virtual camp will be made available at no cost to participants, registration is required in advance.

The Marshall University Jazz Program and the School of Music understands how challenging this time has been, especially for those of us involved in the arts. This free virtual jazz camp is our small way of keeping the music alive and of helping to inspire the next generation of jazz musicians and educators. We hope as many of you as possible can join us for a fun and enriching week of music, sharing, teaching, and learning.
