Maryland Summer Jazz, our sister workshop, is in it’s 17th year as one of the few workshops on earth to dedicate themselves entirely to adult amateur and semi-pro musicians. Artistic Director Jeff Antoniuk has been working with the adult music education population for decades with his “real world” offerings such as Jazz Band Masterclass and Capitol City Voices, and his rich online offerings, including JazzWire and the Digging Deeper Jazz videos on YouTube. His Digging Deeper videos have been seen over two million times.
Jazz is all about community and interaction. Whether on the bandstand or in life, we do better when we are working together. Maryland Winter Jazz is an amazing opportunity to bring passionate musicians from across the globe together in a meaningful and powerful way. Our mission is to create direction and fulfillment in our participants lives, both in how they achieve their musical goals, but also in their ability to connect with others with the same passion and drive.
Everything we do at Maryland Winter Jazz, JazzWire and Digging Deeper Jazz drives to the same goal - to bring adult musicians together around curated, quality information, and caring support. All the support in the world won’t make us play better, and conversely all the information in the world is NOT going to get us playing better, without the curation and attention we all need. Our passion is getting adult musicians playing better than they ever thought possible, and we do it 365 days a year.
