“Point of View” Jazz Ensemble Summer Jazz Camp 

“HEAL Center for the Arts” is launching a one (1) week summer jazz camp August 1, 2022 through August 5th, 2021. Students participating in this camp will be taught a rigorous curriculum that will be presented asynchronously through our digital course materials. Students will have the opportunity to focus on historical, theoretical and practical concepts that will stimulate and enhance their artistic abilities, preparing them to be dominant competitors for college scholarships and/or arts employment. This summer, pianist, vocalist, and composer Ryan Marques will be our guest teaching artist.

 

Goal


Our goal is to offer life changing artistic experiences to all students especially those of urban communities. We endeavor to equip our students with the skills and mindset to be creators and producers of meaningful art. 

 

Objective


The purpose of this camp series is to direct and develop young passionate artists to be innovative, studious, and informed about the history and culture of the musical genres and styles that they are studying. We believe that this approach is focused and balanced. It will ultimately enable our students to create meaningful art that will positively influence the way in which our society thinks, and feels.
