Litchfield Jazz Camp Kids (LJC KIDS)

A Summer Music Learning Experience for 8 – 11 year olds

At Canterbury School, New Milford, CT
Monday, July 10TH – Friday, July 14TH

Is your child ready to explore music making? Does he/she love to sing? Are they playing an instrument or interested in doing so? For years Parents have been asking us to create a music learning experience for kids under 12. Now we have!

Litchfield Jazz Camp Kids is a new program by the world-renowned Litchfield Jazz Festival and Litchfield Jazz Camp, catering to beginners, early learners, as well as kids with some music experience.

LJC Kids runs from July 10th t0 14th on the same campus hosting Litchfield Jazz Camp. the program is created by early music education professionals with a schedule built around the needs of young children.

The instructional day lets students explore all kinds of music, both instrumental and vocal, and learn the basics of rhythm, percussion, harmony, notes, sight-reading, and even lyric writing. Plenty of time is allowed for exercise, listening, games, fun, and a bit of rest. The food is great, the Canterbury campus is gorgeous, and the staff welcoming.

At Litchfield Jazz Camp Kids, your child will have a chance to hear music making at its best by Litchfield Jazz Camp faculty and high-level students and even jam with them. While learning the basics, campers will be excited by what they can ultimately do if they develop the skills and the passion for music they see all around them here. Perhaps beast of all you children will meet who share their growing interest.

The camp is licensed by the State of Connecticut and there is a nurse on duty at all times. We have a relationship with a local physician and hospital.

For beginners, instruments will include hand percussion – using shakers, maracas, congas, bongos, and more. More advanced learners can play their own instruments. Keyboard, drums, and percussion instruments will be provided.

The same high quality instruction for which Litchfield Jazz Camp is famous will be given your youngsters at Litchfield Jazz Camp Kids.
