NEC Summer Session 2013
Sunday, June 23–Friday, June 28
Spend a week in the city eating and breathing jazz with some of the best musicians in the country. Surround yourself with like-minded musicians, make friendships that will last a lifetime, and learn for yourself why NEC is the best place to be for a young jazz musician. Unlike many other summer jazz programs, the NEC Jazz Lab offers both an intimate setting for learning combined with the rich urban landscape of Boston.

NEC Jazz Lab is a one week jazz intensive, where students aged 14-18 work with our premier jazz faculty and participate in a week full of improvisation, small group training, jam sessions, entrepreneurial workshops and college audition prep. Special guest artists Dominique Eade, Ken Schaphorst, Joe Morris, and Rakalam Bob Moses will hold masterclasses daily with concerts each evening. Come with your own combo and receive rigorous training as a group, or be placed in a combo of equals who will challenge and inspire you.
