All about that bass - or brass? Turn your proficiency up a few decibels with our two-week intensive Music program, designed to infuse accomplished student musicians with the know-how and skills needed to become respected artists, composers and entrepreneurs - and exemplary college musicians.
Our jazz-centric curriculum lets you honein on one instrument (preferably your strongest), developing it individually and collectively in an eclectic mix of private and semi-private lessons, small ensemble work, and improv and jam sessions. This is the all-day band class you’ve dreamed of, where you improve ear training, reading and performance - and dissect the music business - alongside the best of national and international high school talent.
