COVID-19 is not slowing us down.

Maryland Summer 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 Summer Jazz is offering a 100% safe and amazingly effective online workshop. We had 70 thrilled members at our virtual summer workshop in 2020, and they asked for more! In response, we debuted Maryland Winter Jazz in January, and now we're back with two incredible 3-day sessions of Maryland Summer Jazz 2021, an experience that wouldn’t be possible in the real world.
 
Your eagerness to connect, to be inspired, and to move ahead like crazy in your playing and understanding is still here, perhaps like never before. Your desire to invest in yourself certainly hasn’t changed. If anything it has become more pressing. 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 Anat Cohen, Vincent Herring, or Randy Brecker, and doing a private lesson with Jeff Antoniuk or one of our other core faculty members!

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

For more than 20 years, we have heard two wishes at the end of camp: (1) that attendees had known about us sooner, and (2) that they could continue to accelerate their learning after returning home from camp. We’ve taken that sentiment to heart, and have created JazzWire, a breakthrough experience in adult jazz education that begins well before you arrive at camp, and continues long after.

When you sign up for MSJ, you will also join JazzWire. This platform is unique in allowing our members to post recordings for comment by instructors and other community members. You'll get actionable feedback every time you post. This daily interaction supplements the individualized Practice Plan and Evaluation you will receive upon joining.

Before Camp, you will have the opportunity to practice the songs we will delve into at MSJ. Your fellow campers will be your friends from JazzWire. In short, you will be primed for an enjoyable, relaxed and educational camp experience. Find out more on the Workshop Information page.

Looking Forward to seeing you there!
