We welcome beginners, intermediate and advanced players.

Founded in 2011 by Ken McGloin and Bill Fiore, PDS
Jazz Camp

serves students from various school districts throughout Dutchess, Ulster and beyond during a 1 week session on the beautiful campus of Poughkeepsie Day School, New York. We have a faculty of talented jazz musicians that are both teachers and working artists. PDS Jazz Camp welcomes all learners: students 12 years to 18, beginners, intermediate and advanced players. Our goal is to broaden knowledge of jazz band and combo playing; improve theory and improvisation skills. We expect everyone to respect each other; participants are all at different levels in playing and we encourage students to support each other.
