The 2021 Hilton Head Jazz Clinic, Hilton Head Jazz Guitar Institute and main Hilton Head Jazz Camp are located on the new beautiful Bluffton campus of Hilton Head Christian Academy located at 3088 Bluffton Parkway in Bluffton, South Carolina.
This 26-acre campus, in the heart of the Lowcountry between Beaufort, Hilton Head & Savannah serves as a terrific setting for learning jazz with our esteemed faculty. With brand new state of the art facilities spanning our main education building and fine arts facility, it will be an incredible location for our 2021 Hilton Head Jazz Camp.
Students use multiple rehearsal spaces and classrooms for the big band & combo rehearsals, improv, jazz theory, master classes and elective offerings. Although a majority of our students are local to South Carolina and Georgia, we offer lodging options for students who wish to attend the Hilton Head Jazz Camp from out-of-state.
We will be using several amazing spaces on HHCA’s brand new campus designed for 21st century learning, including a well-appointed music room, numerous classroom rehearsal spaces, our indoor/outdoor cafe and the beautiful HHCA Performing Arts Center. The HHCA Performing Arts Center features a large stage, state-of-the art sound and lighting with seating for 400 guests. This will also be the location for faculty recital, camp recital and camp finale performance.
Other amazing opportunities have taken place for our camp students over the past several years, including a private lunch/masterclass at the award-winning Jazz Corner, a private tour of the Gretsch Drums factory and an additional evening performance at the Roasting Room music venue in Old Town Bluffton for our overnight hotel students. We always have some amazing surprises in store at the Hilton Head Jazz Camp!
After students have completed a wonderful week of rehearsals and preparation, we will celebrate with a BBQ dinner on Friday afternoon and then a 5pm camp recital, featuring our vocalists and combos. On Saturday of camp week, students will report to our finale performance venue for a finale rehearsal, pizza party and performance and will each receive 2 complimentary tickets for their families. The grand finale concert typically takes place on Saturday of camp week, early in the afternoon.
