CLINICIAN JACKSON ON DUTY

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.

BLACK AND WHITE

Things are looking pretty black and white around here! Once Rick gets back from our summer shutdown with the rest of the crew, he’ll start final assembly on these two custom models.

The transblack is a Bambino Deluxe, and the transwhite is a 16-B…both highly customized.

ONE-WAY TICKET TO SWITZERLAND!

We’ve been cranking out a few of our Bambinos lately, and this newest baby has a one-way ticket to Switzerland! As its name implies, the Bambino is a baby in size compared to its 17″ flagship brothers…but with a BIG voice. Its lightweight and compact 14-½” body is easily manageable and features a laminated autumnburst maple top and espresso sides, back, and maple neck shaped for playing comfort as only a Benedetto can be. Finished off with two gold plated Benedetto A–6 pickups and a 50th Anniversary truss rod cover! Photos by Stephanie Ward.
