If you are an instrumental music player wishing to learn about our American contribution to the music of the world...jazz, then this camp is for you.The "big band" experience will revive your spirit, expand your knowledge of jazz, and give you the chance to learn from others, regardless of experience level. The band quickly becomes a team, with all members assisting those who may be having difficulty.

This is the only program I attend. A good band this year, and got to play a lot of my transcriptions, and a lot of clarinet. Best one yet!

Attended the Big Band Program 10/5-10/10. I had a wonderful time, and enjoyed working with some great folks making music. I wouldn't trade the experience for the world. Galen McQuarrie
