Jazz at Cornish

Class Description

Jazz at Cornish affords talented middle and high school students an opportunity to develop their jazz improvisation skills with the nationally renowned Cornish College of the Arts jazz faculty and special guest artists. Students can expect an exciting and fun-filled week playing in ensembles with other talented students and will benefit from both formal and informal tutoring by the faculty.

The Intensive has been designed so aspiring young musicians can unleash their creative potential and develop the improvisational skills required for spontaneous, interactive music making. Through various exercises designed to cultivate deeper listening skills and boost confidence, the workshop will delve into the art of jazz improvisation. The week culminates in a concert featuring all of the students in ensembles of different sizes and styles.


Who Should Enroll: Students already possessing a foundation on their instrument and experience playing in a jazz band or orchestra at their middle or high school. Vocalists as well as instrumentalists should apply. Students ages 12 to 18 at an intermediate and advanced skill level on their instruments.
