The SRU Summer Jazz Academy is a week-long, jazz-focused program for high school students and is typically offered in late June. Participation in the program includes performance in big band and jazz combo, as well as courses in jazz improvisation, jazz history, and music theory. Master classes and lessons are provided for each student.
Students of all levels are encouraged to participate. Many who attend are well-versed in jazz, but no prior jazz experience is needed! This program affords the student the opportunity to experience the wonderful residence life at Slippery Rock University, or the flexibility of a commuter option.
