CCJA Summer Institute Week 1: 6/7-6/12
Middle School Latin Jazz Ensemble • Monday-Friday 4:00-5:30pm • Performance Saturday 6/12 for CCJA Summer Mini-Fest (11am-4pm - exact set time TBD)
The Middle School Latin Jazz Ensemble is open to students ages 10-14 on any instrument. No background with Latin music is necessary. Students will learn some of the many, many dynamic styles of Latin music from the Caribbean to the South American continent including: mambo, son, salsa, samba, bossa, and more! This group is always a popular favorite of the CCJA Summer Institute and we are thrilled to offer a middle school version of this group that we typically only offer to high school students. The musical skills, concepts, and cultural appreation learned here are sure to stay with students long after their time in this group. Beyond that, this group is FUN!
Instruments such as piano, bass amps, guitar amps, drum sets, and Latin auxilary percussion are provided.
