John Clayton Jazz
Jazz Port Townsend – The Workshop

July 21-28, 2019
Fort Worden State Park, Port Townsend, WA

Spend a week living and learning with some of the finest musicians in the jazz world. Led by Artistic Director John Clayton, Jazz Port Townsend is the summer jazz camp designed to take you to the next level of musicianship. There’s a lot to learn at Jazz Port Townsend in 2019 and we are excited to introduce you to several faculty who are new this year. Whether it’s your first time here or your 33rd, you’ll find lots of fresh input on how to improve throughout the year.

The workshop is open to participants high school-aged and above, so whether you’re a journeyman performer, aspiring professional, or an enthusiastic beginner, you’ll find colleagues who are the perfect fit for you to make music with. If you are an educator, please visit our Educator Track section to learn how you can be a part of the week.

Artistic Director John Clayton has hand-picked faculty who are outstanding both as performers and teachers. They’ll inspire you with their playing, and then work with you directly to develop your own skills.

You’ll receive focused instruction as you rehearse daily in combos or vocal classes. Jazz Theory sessions provide valuable information for increasing your skills as an improviser. Master classes are conducted each day by faculty members who cover topics specific to their chosen instruments. “Faculty Presents” concerts each afternoon give you a chance to hear performances in an intimate setting. The workshop culminates in a series of “Students Present” concerts in which all participants have an opportunity to perform.



I’m really loving the theme/design of your website. Do you ever run into any web browser compatibility issues?

A small number of my blog readers have complained about my site not working
correctly in Explorer but looks great in Opera. Do you have any ideas to help fix this issue?

It’s appropriate time to make a few plans for the future and it is time to be happy.
I’ve learn this put up and if I may I wish to recommend you some attention-grabbing issues or
advice. Maybe you could write next articles relating to this
article. I wish to learn more issues about it!

I do consider all of the ideas you have presented to your
post. They’re really convincing and can definitely work.
Still, the posts are too brief for starters. Could you please extend
them a bit from subsequent time? Thanks for the post.

It’s wonderful that you are getting ideas from this paragraph as
well as from our dialogue made at this place.

Asking questions are actually nice thing if you are not understanding something fully, except this article
offers fastidious understanding yet.
