2019 Special Guests TBD


The Rockport Jazz Workshop was first held in August 2014 (then known as Rockport Jazz Camp), and since that time, has expanded greatly from 7 students and 1 faculty member to 120+ students and 10 faculty members. Rockport Jazz Workshop is proud to bring students of all ages, abilities, and backgrounds together from all over the Northeast!

Daily events typically include small group performance workshops covering jazz improvisation and music theory, jazz listening/history classes, masterclasses grouped by instrument, special guest masterclasses, and large ensemble performance workshops.  Please note that a background of 1-2 years on the student’s primary instrument is required. No audition is required to attend the workshop.

In addition to the daily routine of the workshop, there are always several events that are free and open to the public.
