Wayne Markworth, Program Director



​Jazz Pedagogy Track


Joe’s Jazz Camp Jazz Pedagogy track is a five day workshop on techniques and materials for teaching school jazz ensembles. The target group is band directors with minimal jazz playing or teaching experience, with a goal of gaining knowledge and confidence in teaching jazz to middle and high school students. Experienced jazz educators will also learn new approaches and materials to further their jazz education skills. There will be a directors’ big band with rehearsals daily to apply the materials presented as well as opportunities to observe Joe’s Jazz Camp faculty working with students.
