Summer music camps are a great way to motivate students to strive for the next band level and also to have them realize what an elevated band experience might feel like. (Summer camps are also a worthwhile way to keep dust from accumulating on your child’s instrument case during the break!) There are day camps, week long dorm-stay camps, and more substantial three and four week camps available.
Some good jazz camp options are listed here: http://www.chicagojazz.com/summer-jazz-camp
Mr. Thompson will be leading a jazz combo camp from June 11-June 29 as well that will run four days a week nearby in Barrington.
There’s also a really good combo camp in Grayslake run by Bill Chapin that Mr. Thompson highly suggests: https://billchapinjazz.com/
