Camp is a wrap for 2022!  Enjoy the recorded culminating performance to hear these newest groups of jazz student musicians, read about the student’s afternoon with Camp Clinician Roxy Coss in our news, or head over to Facebook to see some pictures highlighting the experience. 


The JazzArts Music Camp is an exciting one-week comprehensive music training program for students, grades 7-12, devoted to America’s original art form: JAZZ. Students will be immersed in an intensive jazz curriculum and have the opportunity to interact and play with other motivated young musicians from across the Charlotte region.

The JazzArts Music Camp curriculum includes: small combo performance, jazz improvisation, faculty concerts (each afternoon), jazz history and listening, jazz theory (basic to advanced), composition, master class instruction on bass, drums, guitar, piano, saxophone (all woodwinds), trombone and trumpet, and student jam sessions. All instruments are welcome, including vocals.

There will be a culminating community concert performance on Friday evening, the last day of camp.
