Joe’s Jazz Camp

Folks! My staff and I are very excited to announce our 1st annual Big Band Jazz Camp June 18th-23rd 2017 at Cambridge High School in Milton Georgia!

Registration is officially open! Visit for info.

Thanks to the help of our Artistic Director Lee Watts and many other great educators we have come up with a wonderful model to help enhance the lives of our young adults through Jazz!

Members of my Big Band along with some top notch teachers from around the country will be on hand to help keep this music alive and inspire our youth!!

Please visit our website: and share with your friends.


To educate and enhance our youth through America’s premier art form. Studying, practicing, and performing jazz can build a student’s confidence, encourage creativity, and inspire excellence! The universal language of music is the gateway to higher thinking. The sky is the limit!

We are also accepting financial support from those that wish to help. You can sponsor a student for the week, help provide lunch for kids or simply donate any $ amount to help this camp succeed!

Thanks so much and we hope to see you in June!!!
