It’s overnight summer camp, close to home, for Central Florida jazz students.

You’ll learn from professional and university-level clinicians, who emphasize fun and energy in a positive environment.

You’ll have fun with friends, old and new, who share your passion for jazz music.

You’ll build your confidence and your skills – and your network of connections.

You’ll perform alongside the clinicians on stage at Disney Springs.

It’s a week of jazz, learning and making life-long friends. Join us!
