Jazz Intensive

This summer program is for students with previous experience playing a woodwind, brass, percussion, or rhythm section instrument. The BC Summer Jazz Intensive is designed to strengthen students' technique and performance skills in both jazz combo and jazz ensemble settings. Each day students will be learning and developing their skills with jazz improvisation and playing by ear, performing in a combo, performing in a larger group setting or instrumental section, jazz theory, and jazz appreciation. Students will leave this intensive with a deeper understanding of jazz music as well as the confidence to improvise more freely amongst their peers.
