This year (again) our own Jackson Evans joins the Hilton Head Jazz Clinic as a clinician with the goal “to help beginners take their first step towards learning jazz in order to prepare for the larger main camp in the future.”
Here are just a few shots from his time last week.
Over the past three 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 25-29 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 5 days.
This year as part of the jazz clinic tuition, we will be including a morning trip to Savannah on Wednesday, June 27th with a tour of two music factories (Benedetto Guitars and JodyJazz Inc.) in beautiful neighboring Savannah, Georgia.
