Opportunities to study jazz in a small group setting are available at the Community Music School year-round. Students interested in jazz studies should contact the CMS for more information and placement into an ensemble or private lesson program.
We are proud to announce an intensive week of study available to intermediate and advanced students this summer, free of charge. The Courtney Wynter Sr. Memorial Jazz Camp is a 5 day event for serious music students in grades 8 through 12. Students explore their individual voices within a supportive ensemble environment, with a concentration on exploring jazz styles, standard repertoire and improvisation.
