Music Camp, Jazz Track – Summer 2022

Lee University’s Summer Music camp will take place June 17-22 for rising 9th graders to rising college freshmen, offering five different tracks to accommodate the needs of everyone, including the Music Lovers Track, the College Preparatory Track, the Worship Leader Track, the Jazz Track, and the Piano Track.    

Music Camp offers an experience geared to enhance musical skill and knowledge. Students will have the opportunity to gain experience in piano, choir, chamber strings, band, or jazz combos alongside Lee University faculty and camp staff. Students will also study music theory and music history along with specialized areas of focus.    

“Lee U Summer Music Camp is a great place for developing musicians to get a glimpse of the next level and take a huge step toward getting there,” said Laud Vaught, music resource center coordinator and music camp director. “It’s an immersive experience with a camp atmosphere, and many campers have told us that it’s their favorite week of the year, every year!” 

Each day begins with an all-camp chapel service, followed by a music theory or jazz theory class. The remainder of the day is spent in a track-appropriate combination of rehearsals, music history classes, seminar classes, aspects of worship classes, master classes, or aural skills classes. After dinner and free time, there is an evening concert and a social activity before ending the day with small group devotionals. 

Evening concerts will spotlight piano, vocal, instrumental, and jazz music from Lee ensembles and faculty. Depending on the track chosen, students will present concerts on Friday night and/or Saturday morning. Evening concerts, which will be held on that Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, will take place at 7:30 p.m. and are free and open to the public.   

Lee jazz faculty will perform Tuesday night in the Dixon Center. On Wednesday evening, music faculty and staff will perform in Squires Recital Hall, and on Thursday, Opera Theatre will perform in Squires, as well.  

Dormitory housing (resident) or commuter (non-resident) options are available with an optional meal plan available for commuters.  The cost is $595 for residential campers and $425 for non-residential campers. Both prices require an additional $50 registration fee.
