Get Immersed in Jazz!
If your child is between the ages of 10-18 and has previous experience on a musical instrument, they can enroll in a Summer Jazz Camp. Ashby Anderson and Muse Creative Workspace offers three different camps that teach students how to improvise, arrange and compose music while exposing them to American Jazz artists from the 1900s to the present. Students participate with and gain invaluable experience from accomplished jazz musicians from the community.
