Jazz Improvisation

Jazz Improvisation

Are you tired of watching other students in your jazz band take all of the solos? Are you afraid to take a solo because you don't know how to improvise? These camps are designed to help any middle or high school musician learn how to improvise in a jazz setting. Students must have a minimum of 2 years of musical training, be familiar with the basics of their instrument, and be able to read music. Students at every level will learn how to improve their jazz improvisation!

Students can:

  • Learn the basics of jazz improvisation and be better prepared to perform jazz solos in school or in public.
  • Create more artistic improvisations over the standard 12 bar blues and 32 bar standard tunes.
  • Appreciate jazz improvisation by viewing and listening to the solos of historic jazz legends and learning about the history of jazz.
