Come play with us this summer and learn more about the wonderful world of jazz! You’ll listen to and learn from Interplay’s award-winning faculty in master classes and combo rehearsal, and you could play in a big band. Start each day listening to and being inspired by Interplay faculty, then move into a day of learning technique, ear training and playing music. Rehearse and play in a combo each day, as you build your jazz repertoire and performance skills in preparation for your two Interplay performances.
