For beginners, instruments will include hand percussion using shakers, maracas, congas, bongos and more. More advanced learners will play in ensembles on their own instruments with students at the same level.
Over two decades of teaching and learning at Litchfield Jazz Camp, parents have urged us to create opportunities for younger and younger children. Litchfield Jazz Camp Kids is our response to those requests.All students will get a grounding in vocal performance. Group lessons will be followed by breakout sessions in voice and instrumental music.

Experienced instructors from LJC, themselves performers, teachers, and recording artists are excited to work with your children. We anticipate around 40 students in classes of 7-8. A favorable student-teacher ratio ensures every child receives special attention.

Students who expect to be in more advanced groups will bring their own woodwinds, strings, and brass instruments. Litchfield Jazz will provide keyboards and drums and may be able to assist in securing other needed instruments.

The same high quality instruction you see at Litchfield Jazz Camp will be provided to your youngsters at Litchfield Jazz Camp Kids. For more information, or questions please call 860-361-6285 or email
