Youth Programs

Youth Camps & Intensives

The Jazzschool is proud to offer a range of summer camps and intensives for young musicians (middle school and high school age). These fun, immersive programs are a great way to jump-start your learning, by working with our talented instructors for a week or more. They also serve as the perfect forum for you to connect with like-minded musicians from around the Bay Area and beyond.

Our camps and intensives conclude with a concert at the Jazzschool, free and open to the public. Space is limited and each of these programs is certain to sell out! Early registration is highly recommended.
