Adult and high school musicians - join us for our 12th year of great Summer Jazz
education, performances, jam sessions and concerts! Plan to attend our three-day
camp from July 27-29, 2016, and our popular “Music Theory and Prep Session” three
weeks before the camp on July 9, 2016.
We’ll continue our tradition of providing amazing faculty, innovative curriculum and
great organization. Participants and faculty continue to rate Maryland Summer Jazz
among the finest camps in the nation. Learn and play in small combos with top
recording artists, Grammy winners and university professors. Exciting electives round
out the jazz camp experience.
MSJ is held in Rockville, Maryland, just outside of Washington, DC. Many participants
travel from other states to this family vacation destination. Attend public concerts and
enjoy sight seeing at national museums. Area residents commute to jazz camp; out of
towners stay at nearby hotels.
MSJ helps serious semi-pros and college music majors get to the next level. We are
also a great “summer refresher course” for full time music teachers. Beginning jazz
players, as well as talented high school players will also find a great spot with us. This
works, because all of our classes are grouped by skill level. You will be comfortable
and relaxed, but challenged and growing!
Don’t miss Maryland Summer Jazz, our once-a-year festival of workshops, jams and
concerts. This year’s faculty is AMAZING. See the Faculty Bio page for exciting details.
