The Music for all Summer Symposium Jazz Band curriculum allows students to participate in an immersive big band experience, while taking master classes/lessons with world renowned jazz artists. Classes include Jazz Improvisation, Jazz History, Jazz Arranging, and plenty of jam sessions!
Students come away from camp with much more insight into the music, the art of performing, and the art of experiencing jazz! Students meet and get to know others from across the country who share their love of music-making and jazz especially. Each jazz ensemble performs in concert at the end of the week for fellow campers, family, and friends on the final Saturday.
“Everyone knows you are going to have an incredible time at the Music for All Summer Symposium this summer! The teachers of the Jazz division who work with you on a daily basis are the most important element of why you should choose to go to a camp, and ours are world-class!”
– Mark Buselli, Symposium Jazz Coordinator
FINAL PERFORMANCE ATTIRE: Students will wear blue jeans, white button-show shirt, tie, and black shoes.

What Should Your Child Bring?
June weather in Indiana is often unpredictable. Historical averages for this area range from 60°F-90°F and often include high humidity. Please keep that in mind when packing for camp.
Staying in Touch with your Student
The Music for All Headquarters staff is unable to receive and deliver messages to students by phone, unless an emergency requires immediately delivery. If you wish to speak with your child during the week, plan your calling schedule before your child leaves home.
Supervision and Health Info
Your child’s safety is our utmost priority. While at camp, your child is required to attend all classes, meals, concerts, and nightly floor meetings, where attendance is taken.
