THE JAZZ HARMONY RETREAT (FOR EDUCATORS) – JULY 8-13, 2019

The Jazz Harmony Retreat is a hands-on training week in jazz harmony for educators and qualifying college students. With a very small student/teacher ratio, the faculty (which includes Dr. Justin Binek and Jeremy Fox) will offer you a brand new harmonic awareness.  The camp includes: Jazz Theory, Vocal Jazz Arranging, Jazz Piano, and Recording Studio Production.

 

At the end of the week, you will have written your own vocal jazz chart, and recorded an excerpt of it. You will also be able to play a jazz song on the piano in whatever manner you wish. A safe and friendly environment, all experience levels are welcome.  NOTE: OPEN TO THE FIRST 18 REGISTRANTS ONLY.
