Tritone Jazz Fantasy Camps

Play! Learn! Laugh!


SUMMER 2014 UPDATE: At Jazz at Naz (July 20-25), we have room for only one more drummer. And believe it or not, as of June 13, only three guitarists have signed up to spend the week studying with the legendary Gene Bertoncini; there's room for two more. At Cool on the Lake (Aug. 3-8), we could use two more trombonists, but otherwise, we're full.

At Tritone Jazz Fantasy Camps, you'll learn and play jazz for a week in a friendly, non-threatening environment, supported by a faculty of caring, professional jazz musician/educators and surrounded by people just like you.

Each summer jazz camp offers:

  • five full days of small combo and big band playing

  • ear training and improvisation classes

  • vocal and instrumental master classes

  • jam sessions

  • evening concerts featuring faculty and campers

  • professional players/teachers guiding every session

You must be at least 21 years old to attend.

Players and singers of all skill and experience levels are welcome. No tapes, no auditions. Tell us about your experience and we'll place you where you'll feel most comfortable. Ability to read music is useful, but "ear players" have a great time at Tritone jazz camps.

We specialize in personal attention with a 5:1 camper-to-faculty ratio.
