Everyone is invited to attend and have a good time. It’s a great celebration to mark the end of an educational, fun week of learning jazz. The MDJW, created in 2008, is a week-long day workshop in July desgined to teach jazz to anyone interested, no matter the age, background, experience, or instrument. Through classes in jazz theory, composition, improvisation to master-classes from guest-clinicians, students receive a well-rounded, fun, education in jazz. Besides the classroom learning, students play and rehearse in combos, designed to teach teamwork. As performers and educators, the faculty and myself strongly believe in the need to pass along the tradition of jazz, while at the same time, encourage creativity and free expression, helping students move forward to a point where they can achieve the goals that they set for themselves. Whether these goals are modest or they want to push themselves to the highest level of instrumental or vocal mastery in jazz (or somewhere in between), the faculty and students pursue and explore possibilities, and enjoying themselves in the process.
