The Middle School Funk Ensemble is open to students ages 10-14 on any instrument.

A CCJA Summer Institute favorite! Led by a professional jazz musician on CCJA's faculty (TBD), students in this combo will dive into the wide, diverse world of funk music. Playing and exploring repertoire from classic funk to modern day, this group will also hone improvisational skills, musical technqiues, and communicating musically with others in playing as a band. This group is limited to 8 participants and only one on each of the following instruments: drums, bass, and vibraphone. Registration for this group and the spots available are first come, first served.

Instruments such as piano, keyboards, bass amps, guitar amps, drum sets, vibraphones, and auxilary percussion are provided on-site. Please reach out the CCJA Staff Member Annie Booth at annie@jazzarts.org with any questions about this ensemble.
