Over the past six years, we have expanded our overall program by offering the new Hilton Head Jazz Clinic focused on beginning instrumentalists from ages 10-14 who have only been playing 1-2 years on their instrument. The clinic is a mini-version of the full jazz camp taking place in late June daily on the campus of Hilton Head Christian Academy with a final concert on the last day of the clinic. With a focus on basic jazz technique, instrument masterclasses, beginning jazz theory and ensemble playing, you will be amazed on what these kids can accomplish in 5 days.
As part of the jazz clinic tuition, we have included a special full day music trip on Wednesday of the clinic week to beautiful neighboring Savannah, Georgia to tour both JodyJazz and Benedetto Guitars. It is an awesome five days for our beginner jazz students to learn all about jazz and be exposed to potential careers in the music industry. The jazz clinic is primarily taught by director James Berry, along with upcoming faculty and former alumni of the main Hilton Head Jazz Camp, who are now young professional musicians. The purpose of the clinic is to help beginners take their first step towards learning jazz in order to prepare for the larger main camp in the future.
Registration for the 2022 Hilton Head Jazz Clinic taking place in June will take place in early 2022.
