About the Clinics

JMI has been running Summer Jazz Clinics since the late 1970’s. Designed to be an intensive 4-day clinic, the Summer Jazz Clinics are 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
