CAMP 2018

Registration will be open by February 23rd.


Registration will be open by February 23rd.

Imagine yourself learning about jazz on the beautiful University of Miami Frost School of Music Campus...


(For winds, piano, bass, guitar, drums. Jazz Voice is offered only in the Advanced Honors Program)

Campers will enjoy all the musical experiences gained by playing in a performing jazz ensemble. Students will be guided by Frost School of Music professors, graduate students and alumni, along with other professional musicians! All are dedicated to creating the best possible environment for learning in a positive, supportive, and non-competitive atmosphere. We want to inspire your child to work hard to reach the next level of musical ability!

Our program provides the opportunity for campers to study musical subjects that are typically not a part of a school music program. We especially encourage creativity and improvisation. The ability to improvise is essential for jazz musicians!

Select the LEVEL that best fits your child. Elementary and Intermediate Levels are offered in Session A: June 19 to June 30 and Advanced and Advanced Honors Levels are offered in Session B: July 3 to July 14. Your school or private music teacher will be able to help you decide. After you register, we will email this teacher a recommendation form to confirm that your camper is in the correct level. NOTE: ENROLLMENT IS LIMITED. ACCEPTANCE MAY BE SUBJECT TO INSTRUMENTATION.
