The Shoreline-Lake Forest Park Arts Council is now accepting students for their 2012 Shoreline Jazz Camp to be held August 6 – 10, 13, 14, from 9 am - 1 pm.

2012 Shoreline Jazz Camp is for middle and high school students. The mission of the Shoreline Jazz Camp is to provide young musicians the opportunity to learn and play with some of the region’s most accomplished teachers and performers. The program creates a safe and structured learning environment, in which students of varying skill levels are able to share in the joy of playing Jazz. The camp includes instruction in large and small ensembles, and a series of master classes that are designed to refine the individual’s skills and understanding of Jazz.

The jazz camp is at Shorewood High School for students currently in grades 7-12. The cost is $315 and some scholarships are available.

Classes include:
  • Jazz Combo/Improv
  • Big Band
  • Jazz Theory and Harmony
  • Sight-Reading
  • The Art of Solo Transcription
  • Ear Training
  • And many more…..

The camp will showcase the students’ hard work in two performances on August 14. The first will be an 11 am lunch concert at Shorewood High School, and the second will be at 7 pm at the Shoreline North City Jazz Walk, 17739 15th Ave NE.

Applications are available online now. For more information, including scholarships and deadlines, contact the Arts Council at 206-417-4645.
