Experience Collegiate Level Musical Training

June 18-24, 2017

This one-week intensive program is a great way to see what music study is like at the university level. Each student will receive daily lessons, the chance to perform in masterclasses, and opportunities to attend performances by faculty and peers. Students can enjoy honing their skills in a supportive, Christian environment with JBU faculty and guest artists. Classes topics include theory, jazz improvisation, developing musical taste, and building technique. 

This summer’s program will be led by Dr. Paul Whitley, professor of piano at JBU, and Dr. William Phemister, professor emeritus at Wheaton Conservatory of Music.
