In this workshop for guitarists of all levels (entering 6th grade through 9th), participants will explore making music on the acoustic guitar as both soloists and ensemble members. Students will develop new skills and a deeper understanding of music through an exploration of multiple styles of guitar music (classical, blues, rock, and more).

This is a new take on our Eastman Experience: Summer Jazz Studies program, but redesigned as a week-long day camp for local high school students. This rigorous program provides an intensive, performance-based experience for highly motivated students currently in grades 9–12 and is ideally suited for those considering jazz studies at the collegiate level.
After great success with the middle school Keyboard Explorations program, this year we added a one-week intensive program for high schoolers. It will have the same features to the original version, but at a pre-collegiate level. There will also be a final performance and a masterclass with a world-renowned piano artist.
