Week-long Camp: August 9-13

Instructor: Brandon McCune, Zach Lorelli, Joe Muccioli


Summer at the Jazz Arts Academy is a one-week intensive jazz studies program for aspiring teen jazz musicians.  This is a performance-based program where each student gets the opportunity to perform and to learn about the many aspects of jazz; melody, harmony, improvisation and the rich history of this great music. The faculty includes world-class working professional recording artists who are also dedicated educators.  Students gain insight and experience into the world of jazz by hands-on performance-based classes, theory lessons, workshops and listening sessions.

Students should have at least 3-4 years of instrumental music studies behind them, be able to read music, and should have at least 4-5 major scales memorized to get the most out of this camp session.  A full commitment and attendance at all of the week-long activities is required.   A student showcase will be held on Thursday evening at the Jazz in the Park series in Red Bank.

Tuition assistance grants and a limited number of full scholarships are available.  Please apply early, as these opportunities are limited.


  •     Camp sessions run 9:30 am – 3:30 pm daily for one week.
