We recently concluded the 4th Annual Summer Jazz Workshop. This was our most successful workshop yet, with guest instructors Ernie Watts, Charlie Shoemake, and George Stone. We recently were awarded a grant from SLO Community Foundation to continue to grow this workshop in 2018. More details to come soon. If you'd like to sponsor a student to the 5th Annual 2018 SUMMER Jazz Workshop, please contact us for details at info @ slojazzfest.org without spaces.
5th SUMMER JAZZ WORKSHOP
We will be offering a 5th Annual Summer Jazz workshop in July of 2018. Registration won't open until February 2018.
We're developing an education program with the vision to spread the message about jazz to the youth, musicians, appreciators, and seniors.
Our first education program offering was our Jazz Talks: American Songbook - Great Composers in Jazz Series, in 2014.
The Summer Jazz Workshop REGISTRATION is currently CLOSED.
We have completed registration for the 4th Annual Summer Jazz Workshop, scheduled for June 12 - 16, 2017n. We're expanding to a full week and offer "Anyone can Improvise" and "Jazz Masterclass" sessions, with combo, big band, and guest instructors 2x Grammy Award winning sax man Ernie Watts and vibraphonist extraordinaire Charlie Shoemake!
