Students will use multiple rehearsal spaces and classrooms for the big band & combo rehearsals, improv, jazz theory, master classes and elective offerings.  Although a majority of our students are local to South Carolina and Georgia, we offer lodging options for students who wish to attend the Hilton Head Jazz Camp from out-of-state.
