  • Festival format

    We have changed our format from a competitive jazz festival to a non competitive instructional format.

    Big Bands and Combos

    Your ensemble will have the opportunity to work with our guest artist in a 50 minute session.  You will design your time period to best suit your ensemble and student's needs. 

    Perhaps your band has already been rehearsing for weeks and you have some charts ready to perform and have critiqued.  Maybe you are just getting started and want some help getting your students going on style and chart concepts.  You might even want some help with improvisation or rhythm section tips!

    Any or all of these scenarios can be addressed when you join us!
