The 1st annual

Santa Barbara Jazz Workshop

(former titled the Santa Barbara Jazz Camp)

Presented by Kim Richmond and Kimberly Ford

in partnership with the Los Angeles Jazz Society 

and the Santa Barbara Jazz Society

at the Marjorie Luke Theatre and SOhO Restaurant and Music Club ,

Santa Barbara, California

A learning and growing jazz experience for aspiring students of jazz -adults and high school aged students welcomed.: Our limited enrollment (approximately 35 students) to our high ratio of instructors assures an intimate and personalized music education experience. The Santa Barbara Jazz Workshop will be something that you will always treasure as a worthwhile investment in your music education. You will make new friends that share a love of jazz and will also be studying and playing daily with world class seasoned jazz professionals.

A faculty of jazz professionals teach instrumental/vocal master classes, improvisation, jazz listening (how to listen, and who to listen to, old and new), modern jazz combo and big band playing, with concerts and jam sessions each late afternoon (open to the public) where advanced students sit in with the professionals.

This will be an intimate event with 35 students maximum.

A major “perk” is students hanging out with the faculty at meals and after classes, story sessions (ie. about the big bands), and jam sessions. Prior big band or Jazz combo experience is not necessary.

The enjoyment of the awe-inspiring panoramic landscape and ocean views, are an important part of the Santa Barbara experience.
