Virtual Jazz Camp set for June 14-18

Jazz Concert 2019

Marshall University’s jazz studies program will host a Virtual Jazz Camp June 14-18 for music students age 13 through adults. The virtual sessions will be offered with sessions at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. each day and will be livestreamed through the Marshall University Jazz Facebook page.

Jazz-MU-Tazz jazz camp is typically a six-day, five-night camp that is an immersive experience for high school musicians to learn about jazz improvisation and traditions of the jazz idiom. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and safety guidelines, the camp will again be offered as a Virtual Jazz Camp.

Topics to be covered include jazz improvisation, jazz theory, listening skills, and instrument/section master classes by members of the MU jazz faculty.

A registration fee of $75 can be paid by personal check or via credit card.  Once you register, instructions for payment and how to join the camp Facebook group will be sent to the e-mail address you provided.

“Whether Jazz-MU-Tazz meets in person or online, our goal is to help you learn jazz music,” said Jazz Studies Director Dr. Martin Saunders. “Last year’s virtual camp was a great success and connected over 165 students from 13 states and two overseas territories. See who you can connect with while learning jazz improvisation, listening skills, jazz theory and more!”
