Frank speaks about camp ...

Jazz Guitar is a Language

Like all languages, it lives in conversations between and among the people who “speak the language”.   Jazz music in particular, with its emphasis on interplay, is a language that develops in the musical conversations we call “jam sessions”.

 

This year’s camp is organized around the principle that just as the most direct path to learning a spoken language is immersion in that language, rather than classroom learning, the most distilled, accelerated and direct way to grow as a jazz guitarist is through jam-immersion.   


Participants will be part of rotating, instructor-led small ensembles and will do a deep dive into the selected music through intensive, structured jamming and in nightly performances.  There will be some traditional classes as well but the emphasis will be on structured jamming.


As always, the Big Jersey Guitar Camp will feature a supportive environment where beginners are welcome yet intermediate to advanced students will be stretched.

Sign up now for your Early Registration discount.


See you in July!!!
