Jazz 88.3 is so pleased to support Francis Parker's 10th Annual Summer Jazz Workshop again this year, in partnership with The Music Box! Francis Parker's Summer Jazz Workshop offers middle and high school students an opportunity to study and play music with professional jazz musicians while learning performance skills, improvisation, jazz theory and history. Presented in an online format, but with the same high level of jazz education, Jazz Workshop will provide students a daily three one-hour, live online sessions. Students will receive group instruction on their individual instruments and have access to a variety of sessions covering topics in music theory, jazz improvisation, and masterclasses by our fantastic faculty.This is the perfect venue for students to continue to grow musically as they learn to express themselves through the art of jazz improvisation. The week of July 6 will be offered for middle school students in grades 6 through students entering 9th grade. The week of July 20 will be for high school students in grades 10 through 12. Beginning, intermediate, and advanced students are welcome at each session. Scholarships and financial assistance are available and more information can be found below or by contacting workshop director Nate Jarrell.
