With this download we have created and included musical materials to help your student prepare for camp and the instrumental and theory assessments they will take once they arrive. Also included are many materials our musical director, Don Braden, has compiled to help guide a student in their efforts to learn to improvise and play jazz. Providing these materials to you in digital format will reduce the Litchfield Jazz Camp's carbon footprint.
