Rowan Jazz Camp

The Rowan Jazz Camp offers students from southern New Jersey and surrounding states a chance to study with some of the region's finest jazz educators and performers. During this dynamic five-day camp, students will learn big band and small jazz combo techniques as well as improvisation and other musicianship skills necessary for today's jazz students and tomorrow's performers.

Rowan Band Camp

The Rowan Summer Music Camp offers students in grades eight through twelve the opportunity to study with some of the region's finest instrumental, choral and orchestral educators and performers. During this dynamic five-day camp, students participate in large and small ensembles, experience challenging quality repertoire, and have lessons with world-class faculty. Participants develop their musicianship and improve their technical abilities as they perform in master classes, attend music theory sessions, and see recitals from guest artists.

Rowan Choral Vocal Camp

The Rowan Choral Vocal Camp offers students an opportunity to study with fine choral and vocal technicians and perform quality repertoire in large and small ensembles. Throughout the camp, participants will improve their musicianship skills within a supportive environment. Campers also enjoy performances and masterclasses by camp faculty.

Rowan Music Composition/Theory Camp

The Rowan Summer Music Composition Camp offers students in grades seven through 12 a fun opportunity to learn and experience music composition. The camp is designed to expand the composer's toolbox by introducing compositional techniques, investigating orchestration and learning the skill of analysis. The Composition Camp runs at the same time as The Rowan Summer Band Camp and The Rowan Vocal Camp, allowing the Composition Camp two great resources to observe and learn from. Students will bring their primary instrument and will be composing and performing for each other. The Camp concludes on Thursday with students performing their pieces in a '90 Second Speed Concert' which is always a lot of fun for students, parents and audience!

The Rowan Composition Camp has a capped enrollment of 15 students. We have to honor paid registrations in the order they come in.
