Kansas City has a unique claim to the history of jazz. Perpetuating that heritage is a privilege and a responsibility for all Kansas City jazz lovers. One of the most important and challenging attributes of jazz music is the element of improvisation - music that is created on the spot. This camp unravels the mysteries of improvisation for the progressing jazz musician. The camp faculty blend an academic perspective with “in the trenches” expertise. All faculty members are professional musicians working in Kansas City’s vibrant jazz scene as well as being some of the best educators in the city. We welcome middle school, high school and college students, hobbyists, retirees and anyone with a desire to learn and have fun. Tuition includes lunch and a T-shirt.
