Description

Heat up your jazz and improvisation skills this summer! Supported by a naming gift from the Amy Winehouse Foundation, the Amy Winehouse Jazz Summer Intensive is a concentration of BKCM’s annual program. Students must have some prior experience on their instrument, however all levels and instruments are welcome! No audition required!  Students are grouped in small ensembles by level and experience. Improvisation, listening and collaboration are essential skills that students build through weekly performances with their peers and faculty. This is an excellent prep for students who may be interested in pursuing specialized music high schools in NYC.
