« back to classes page
For over 25 years Kuumbwa's Summer Jazz Camp has been a destination for  dedicated young musicians to learn about the thrilling creativity and limitless possibility of Jazz! Over nine days of study, listening, and collaboration this camp covers jazz, improvisation, and jazz appreciation, and will help students grow as musicians. Students will receive both one-on-one and group instruction by professional music educators in the state-of-the-art Cabrillo Performing Arts complex. The camp focuses on live performance, basic improvisation, theory, soloing concepts and phrasing, along with jazz history and appreciation.

We conclude the camp on the final Thursday with a student performance on the famous Kuumbwa Jazz Center stage!

Students are required to know at least 3 major scales and have experience with an instrument. Drummers must know standard jazz rhythms.

 
All students must complete the following survey after registration, in order to provide additional information about musicianship and skill level:
