Rowan Jazz Camp invites students to study in Wilson Hall, home to Pfleeger Concert Hall, Boyd Recital Hall, two newly renovated rehearsal rooms, and over 80 practice rooms including several with “Smart Room” technology.

Students will perform in small groups and big bands, take master classes, and attend music theory, jazz improvisation, MIDI technology, and special sessions dedicated to issues unique to each instrument.

Classes will cover a vast array of topics from Latin rhythms for drum set to an introduction to MIDI, Finale, Smart Music, Sibelius, Garage Band and Band in a Box. Other important topics include preparation for college auditions, practice techniques, the business of music, transcription, and keyboard harmony.

Resident campers will be housed on campus in air-conditioned dormatories and will have meals in the Holly Pointe Dining Hall. Dormitory and campus supervision will be provided by adult camp counselors and Campus Security.
