Our daily schedule for both the Hilton Head Jazz Clinic and the Hilton Head Jazz Camp consists of big band and combo rehearsals, master classes, theory/improv, jam sessions and our new elective offerings.  In addition to our daily schedule, students participate in various camp activities around Hilton Head during the week, including a private lunch/masterclass at the award-winning Jazz Corner, ice cream social, beach day, faculty recital, BBQ dinner, and of course our public camp recital and finale concert. It is amazing what we can squeeze into one week! 

Important notice about COVID-19: “After meeting with the board of the Junior Jazz Foundation, we have unanimously decide to cancel the HH Jazz Camp along with our clinic and guitar institute for 2020. As difficult as this is for us and our students who are desperately looking forward to camp, opinions aside, we must do what is safe and cautious for everyone involved. Outside of last year’s 125 students between the three camp programs, we had at least 500+ people involved in some aspect of the camp – whether it be attending a concert or volunteering. If you have registered for the camp, you will receive a full refund on your registration fee and we will release any hotel reservations. For our college interns, if you are available for 2021, we would love to have you back again. We are not planning on a virtual camp at this time, but have some other possibilities in the works to support your jazz education directly in the upcoming year. On behalf of the faculty, we can’t express how much we’ll miss you all this July and can’t wait to GO BIG for our 10th year in 2021.

Love you all,

James Berry
