Summer Jazz Intensive
June 28 - July 3, 2020

For all Students of all Jazz Instruments
13+ and Adults Welcome

The MRU Conservatory Jazz intensive immerses students in a fun and supportive environment that focusses on the skills needed to play jazz and improvised music. The program allows instrumentalists of all ages an opportunity to study with a faculty of professional artists and educators while make music with other motivated peers.  

The activities and classes throughout the week are geared towards the needs of each individual student, and are sure to grow the confidence and abilities of all participants. The faculty will help students to hear the sounds of jazz, to better understand those sounds and to apply that knowledge to musical situations.  

Classes and activities include: 

  • Small ensembles/combos: rehease daily with a small group led by faculty artists. 
  • Musicianship: classes that focus on ear training and rhythmic exercises.
  • Jazz improvisation/theory: break down the barriers to understanding harmony, song forms and scales.
  • Masterclass/special presenations faculty perform live demonstrations and share their experiences about what it's like to study, perform, compose, and live a life in jazz. 
  • Guided listening: listening sessions led by faculty that explore the recorded history of jazz.
  • Jam sessions: playing sessions with other students and faculty.
