Stanford Jazz Workshop
July 29, 2018 @ 8:00 am - August 3, 2018 @ 5:00 pm UTC+0
Learning alongside experienced educators, touring artists, and legendary jazz masters motivates students to perform at the highest levels. SJW’s approach encourages all students to bring their own personality and life experience into their music, developing their creativity and opening them up to life skills such as collaboration and cooperation. In the intense, supportive, and fun environment of the Stanford Jazz Workshop, students will play the best jazz of their lives.
During the second week, students choose their own classes from a curriculum that focuses on improvisation and includes small ensemble playing, master classes, and performance opportunities, as well as classes in theory, musicianship, arranging, Afro-Latin jazz, jazz history, and more. Unique to the Jazz Institute are the Special Presentations given by artist faculty on topics in which they specialize or in which they have particular experience (see list below). Admission to nightly Stanford Jazz Festival performances is included, and there are several jam sessions each evening.
