BAND DIRECTORS INSTITUTE

Joe’s Jazz Camp Presents

Wayne Markworth, Program Director

Joe’s Jazz Camp is excited to add the band directors jazz institute. The goal of the five day workshop is to give every interested band director the skills and confidence to give a quality jazz education to their students. Each day will feature directors playing in big band rehearsals, allowing the practical applications of the techniques and materials shared to be observed and discussed firsthand. Wayne Markworth has literally written the book on practical and successful jazz education - it has been one of the many hallmarks of his legendary career. All participants will also observe some of the best jazz educators and performers work with current high school students, not to mention hear some amazing jazz.


“As the high school director hosting this camp, I can honestly say my jazz instruction is at a higher level after just watching some of these superstars work with students last year. These instructors are the most sincere and invested musicians anywhere - they will truly blow you away. - Ryan Borger, Cambridge High School

 

Ask your school administration if they will invest in this professional development opportunity for you, and start this summer getting excited about jazz.”
