5th Annual Texas Jazz & Blues Camp

Presented by New School of Music, Austin at St Stephen's Episcopal Church, Austin TX

Jun 07 - 12 2020
5th Annual Texas Jazz & Blues Camp

The Texas Jazz & Blues Camp is coming in June 2020 to Austin, Texas and is a partnership between the New School of Music in Austin and the Litchfield Jazz Camp in Connecticut, which has a deep and rich history of providing a top tier national jazz

Texas Jazz  & Blues  Camp is an all-embracing program focused on musical and personal growth where our students can learn by hearing the greats on our staff and each other. While the commitment to the music is at the highest level, the program is not competitive. There is no pre-audition required.

We listen to you when you arrive and assign you to a combo at your own level. Need-based and merit scholarships are available.


Students are ages 12 to adult, with most in their mid-teens.
