VIDEOS

  • Last day of our Summer Jazz Camp 2020! Lead Clinician Scott Wilson taught another informative session on jazz fundamentals. The Clinicians had individual help sessions with students, reviewing their short improv videos. Then the Clinicians wrapped up the week’s camp with their key points of improving as musicians — to continue to practice and unlock individual creativity. Scott encouraged students to always believe in themselves and to follow all the clinicians and guest artists on social media, to expand their mentorship network.
