  1. Jazz and Creative Institute has summer camps and programs for teens – both beginners and advanced. Kalamazoo, MI.

  2. Wondering about Jazz camps in July. I see only Berklee … are there others? I called the Listing for Manhattan School of Music in Amsterdam as listed above but they never heard of offering such a program in Amsterdam. Thx.
