The Summer jazz workshop is a high school aged camp with levels set for entering 9th through 12th grade. It is designed to be an immersive on-campus experience, with opportunities to grow with fellow musicians. Here you will study the jazz language and small group dynamics within combos that will be selected via audition into the camp. The purpose is to get as much growth possible out of a few days of deep learning and camaraderie. 

Each ensemble will have repertoire selected as a basis for group and individual study, with structured times throughout each day to focus on rehearsals and group language, theory and improvisation, applied lessons, and jazz clinics that address ensemble dynamics, practice and listening while you play. Each ensemble will be led by top artist performers among the JU Jazz Faculty and/or guest artist representatives. The primary focus will be the combo format, as it represents the benchmark for true progress and training in the history of the jazz idiom. However, a big band might also be formed depending on the representative numbers for the camp. 

 Adding to this opportunity to grow as musicians will be a chance to spend open times between rehearsals, courses, clinics, and practice taking advantage of the beautiful Jacksonville University campus and amenities. On campus housing is included along with breakfast, lunch and dinner, as well as evening activities and guest performances. The workshop will culminate with an early evening performance on the final day of the camp. 

The JU Summer Jazz Workshop is by AUDITION ONLY. Auditions must be submitted no later than Wednesday May 15th 2019.  Submissions sent in a private youtube video format is preferred, with a link to the recorded audition sent to professor John Ricci at
