Rockport Jazz Workshop inspires creativity and curiosity in students by developing their musical skills through customized, high-quality instruction from nationally acclaimed jazz educators and performers.  The Rockport Jazz Workshop brings together students ages 10-18 with at least 2 years experience on their instruments to engage in group improvisation workshops, music theory/history courses as well as masterclasses by special guest artists each week. In addition, the end of each session culminates in a live public performance showcasing student learning which is open to family and friends to attend.
