Swing Central Jazz Clinicians

“My students were blown away…. I have never seen so many slack jaws in all my life.”

Basil Kerr, Charleston SC

Each band has the chance to work with multiple clinicians during their individual band clinic – one clinician per instrument. Students also attend an improvisation workshop, instrumental sectionals, and each band receives a rhythm section workshop with Marcus Roberts.
