At the Hilton Head Jazz Camp, we have a highly professional faculty of jazz educators and musicians focused on taking our student’s musical ability to the next level.  Each one of our faculty members brings their own expertise and are quite well known in their respected areas through out the Southeast.   Students get to rotate through several different instructors through out the day in big band ensembles, combos, master classes, theory/improv, and various elective offerings.  It is truly incredible what each student can accomplish with our faculty in a week at the Hilton Head Jazz Camp.
