My son LOVED the Jazz Prep Camp.

At the Summer Jazz Prep Camp you will pick your instrument, begin reading music and learn to play songs in a beginning band. At the end of camp you'll be invited to keep learning in the after-school Jazz Prep Ensembles, which start Fall 2019.

Every student gets:

  • a free JazzED t-shirt

  • an instrument to use at camp*

An Instrument Loan Form is required if your student wants to take their instrument home after camp each day.  

Thursday, June 27 - Wednesday, July 3
Dates have changed as we work to align with school district snow make-up days. We know SPS students will have to miss the first day of camp - this is okay! We’ll catch you up on day two. The camp does not meet on the weekend.   

  • Morning session: 9:00 AM - 1:00 PM (suggested grades 4-5) // CLOSED

  • Afternoon session: 1:00 PM - 5:00 PM (suggested grades 6-8) // CLOSED

  • We suggest choosing the session associated with your student's grade as of Fall 2019 but we can be flexible based on your needs.

Camp is at Rainier Prep, 10211 12th Ave S, Seattle, WA 98168 (map).

Pick from Clarinet, Saxophone, Trumpet, Trombone, or Upright Bass.

Every student will get a t-shirt and the use of a musical instrument while at camp. We are committed to this program being financially accessible for ALL families. You select the tuition amount that works for you.

What parents are saying...

It was a challenging learning environment, but encouraging and attainable as well. The instructors were incredible! And the process, communication, and organization was flawless. The camp inspired my kid to jump into learning music. They have been interested before but now they are passionate about it.
