These week-long day camps will focuses on developing important chamber music and jazz skills which help young performers build confidence and acquire critical musicianship skills that can make them better ensemble players and soloists. Each day of the camp, participants will receive coachings and take part in daily seminars/demonstrations led by professional musicians and music coaches.  The camp will culminate with each group performing on the final concert that will be open to the public.
