COVID-19 is not slowing us down.

Maryland Winter Jazz has gone VIRTUAL!

This is a crazy time around the world, and literally no one knows what things will look like in a week, let alone a month. For that reason, Maryland Winter Jazz is offering a 100% safe and amazing effective online workshop. We had 70 thrilled members at our virtual summer workshop this past July, and they asked for more! Join us for three incredible days of Maryland Winter Jazz, an experience that wouldn’t be possible in the real world.
The ability to connect, to be inspired, and to move ahead like crazy in our playing and understanding is still there, perhaps like never before. Your decision to invest in yourself certainly hasn’t changed. If anything it has become more dear. We are going to help you run with that.

It’s a new world, and we are embracing not only what is possible, but what has previously been impossible. You will be doing a ton of playing online, attending engaging classes, asking questions, and connecting with other adult musicians from around the world, using the Zoom platform. Imagine working for 75 minutes each day with someone like Chris Potter, Mike Stern and Terell Stafford, and doing a private lesson with Jeff Antoniuk or one of our other core faculty members!

Maryland Winter Jazz & JazzWire: The Most Forward-Thinking Jazz Camp On Earth

Over the past 16 years, what we hear most at the end of camp is “I wish I knew at the beginning of MWJ what I know now. I’d be so much further ahead!” We’ve taken that sentiment to heart, and have created an amazing wholistic experience that begins well before you arrive at camp, and continues long after.

JazzWire is an online, global community for adult jazz students, with hundreds of members from over 25 different counties. All musicians attending MWJ are JazzWire members, so your experience with us is unlike that of any other camp or workshop in the world.

Once you join JazzWire, you’ll receive a personalized Practice Plan and Playing Evaluation, which allows you to spend the months leading up to Maryland Winter Jazz 2021 digging deeper into the song selections. You’ll be better prepared, more relaxed and confident, and you’ll have met ALL of your Maryland Winter Jazz campers in advance. You will show up on the first day of MWJ, meeting friends who you’ve known on JazzWire for many weeks and months! JazzWire is a subscription-based educational experience - your time on JazzWire will be the best investment you ever made in yourself and your playing. Find out more on the Workshop Information page.
