  1. A Recent Note to Parents and Administrators

  from the Director of M.U.S.E,  Bryant Allard   “REFLECTIONS”  

Summer Band Camps

Jazz Camp  Oregon only

Students will have the opportunity to work in both a large ensemble (Jazz Big Band) and small combo  setting playing Jazz , Latin Jazz, and Jazz Rock styles. Students are actively involved in organizing their own arrangements of songs in their small combos groups assisted by instructors. Jazz improvisation is taught using basic “Jazz vocabulary” that can be easily read and then implemented into the students own solos.
