It’s the highlight of my whole year! Time to focus on music I love with people who love it as much as I do. The thrill hasn’t worn off in 10 years. —Leslie Toope, vocalist
JazzWorks is a jazz camp for adults and talented youth.

There’s still time to register!
Call us now at 613-523-0316 to find out more.

Join us as we celebrate 25 years in jazz education! The JazzWorks Jazz Camp is a great way for singers and instrumentalists to learn jazz theory and technique from innovative Canadian jazz musicians and international guests, in a relaxed and supportive environment. It's an intensive, adult-focused learning experience where participants of all levels can immerse themselves in improvisation, jazz history, composition and arranging, combo rehearsals and master classes, topped off with nightly jam sessions and concerts featuring camp participants alongside our faculty’s world-class jazz pros.

Enhance Your Experience with the optional Composers’ Symposium or Independent Practice Session!

An additional three-day session (August 13-16—first day optional) is available for composer-arrangers looking to hone their craft. This standalone composition workshop is a great lead-in to the Jazz Camp, allowing musicians to gain some valuable insights and discover new approaches to composing and arranging. You’ll benefit from individual mentorship and group coaching, plus dedicated solo studio time to work on your music. Vocalists and instrumentalists can also register to use these additional 2 or 3 days for some solo practice time and impromptu jamming with other Campers.



The Composers Symposium runs from August 13-16 (first day optional), followed by the Jazz Camp from August 16-19, 2018.
