Jazz Camp Registration
This weeklong jazz camp provides the opportunity for youth in
rising grades 7-12 to participate in a fun and intense
jazz-learning experience under the direction of professional staff
led by Matt Pivec, director of jazz studies at Butler
University. The faculty will include local jazz
professionals. Sessions may include combo rehearsals, big
band rehearsals, jazz improvisation, jazz history and
instrument-specific master classes. The week culminates with
a concert on Friday featuring all of the campers.
No audition is required for admission to camp; all levels are
welcome, although it is strongly recommended that participants have
at least one year of prior study on their instrument. A short
placement audition will be held on the first day of camp (Sunday).
Campers should provide their own instrument.
Guitarists should bring their own amp.
Camp begins on Sunday July 14; all campers should attend from
6:00-9:00pm. Pizza will be provided.
