JMI Summer Jazz Clinics

JAZZ MUSIC INSTITUTE (JMI)'S RENOWNED SUMMER JAZZ CLINICS WILL RUN IN SUMMER 2019 FOR ALL AGES AND ABILITIES!

About the Clinics

JMI has been running Summer Jazz Clinics since the late 1970’s. JMI’s Summer Jazz Clinic is a 4-day jazz performance clinic delivered in a fun and friendly environment for musicians of all abilities and all ages. Whether you have never played jazz before, or you’re looking to improve on the skills you have acquired over years of playing, the Summer Jazz Clinics are designed to ensure that you get more out of 4 days of learning than you ever imagined! These are perfect for young high school students, adult learners, self-taught musicians and prospective tertiary students

In 2019, the Summer Jazz Clinics will not only just run in JMI’s hometown of Brisbane.  JMI will also be bringing the Summer Jazz Clinics to Canberra with the support of ANU’s School of Music.
