July 22—26: Stick with the Standards
Location: Charleston Jazz Academy
At the Jazz Combo camp, students embark on a musical journey like no other, immersing themselves in the rich and vibrant world of jazz. Here, budding musicians expand their skills and delve deep into the forms most commonly used in jazz and popular music, discovering new rhythms, harmonies, and melodies that ignite their passion for creativity. From the soulful sounds of blues to the intricate structures of various song forms, students are exposed to a diverse range of styles that challenge and inspire them to reach new heights in their musical prowess. With each note played and each chord struck, these young talents not only hone their craft but also cultivate a deep appreciation for the artistry and innovation that define jazz music.
