Over the past two years, we have expanded our overall program by offering the new Hilton Head Jazz Clinic focused on beginning instrumentalists from ages 10-14 who have only been playing 1-2 years on their instrument. The clinic is a mini-version of the full jazz camp taking place June 26-29 from 1-4pm on the campus of Hilton Head Christian Academy with a final concert on the last day of the clinic. With a focus on basic jazz technique, instrument masterclasses, beginning jazz theory and ensemble playing, you will be amazed on what these kids can accomplish in 4 days.
This year as part of the jazz clinic tuition, we will be including a morning trip to Savannah on Wednesday, July 28th with a tour of two music factories (Benedetto Guitars and JodyJazz Inc.) along with a provided lunch. It’s going to be an awesome four days for our beginner jazz students. If students are guitarists with 2+ years of experience, I would strongly recommend that they check out the new Jazz Guitar Institute taking place at the same time.
The jazz clinic is primarily taught by director James Berry and former alumni of the main Hilton Head Jazz Camp, who are now young professional musicians. The purpose of the clinic is to help beginners take their first step towards learning jazz in order to prepare for the larger main camp in the future.
