Jazz Camp

Welcoming beginners to advanced players at Poughkeepsie Day School!Aug 1-5, 2022

Magical Things Happen in the 10th Year!

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. We have a faculty of talented jazz musicians that are both teachers and working artists. PDS Jazz Camp welcomes all learners: students 12 to 18 years old, 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.

Open to Hudson Valley area students of all levels, this camp features professional regional musicians as teachers and guest artists. Students focus on building instrumental skills, music appreciation, and leadership in a joyful, collaborative, and supportive atmosphere. This year’s guest artist is NEA and Grammy winning drummer, Jack DeJohnette.
