What is the TRYO Jazz Camp?

A full-day (11am - 5pm) music camp with rehearsals and workshops for three days culminating in a Finale Concert on the Saturday evening.

What music will we get to play?

JAZZ!  Anything from the Golden Age of the Swing Band, Jazz Standards and Funky tunes!

Are singers and string players able to be involved?

YES! A great opportunity for orchestral players who want to try something different.

 

Who can attend?

All upper intermediate and advanced musicians aged 12-22 who are enthusiastic about 3 days playing Jazz!

PLEASE CHECK SKILL LEVEL BELOW FOR SUITABILITY.

Is it only for TRYO members?   

No, you don't have to be a TRYO player - you can just come for the camp.

Although, we're sure you'll enjoy yourself so much that you will want to continue the adventure and be part of TRYO's fun-filled year of performances.

Who is the camp for? 

All Big Band and orchestral instruments and vocals are welcome:

- Strings, (yes violins at a Jazz Camp!) including bass and electric guitar (jazz chord knowledge essential)

- Winds and Brass

- Percussion (very limited places)

- Vocals 

- Piano

NOTE: Limited places are available for bass guitar, guitar and percussion. 

What if I play two instruments?

Players can list a second instrument on the application form after you have listed your preferred one.

This is especially helpful for us know if, for example,  you play both saxophone and clarinet, or you have both Alto and Tenor Saxes. 

What level do you need to be? 

The camp can cater for upper intermediate to advanced musicians and singers.

Check with your teacher if you're not sure of your level.

Grade 4/5+ AMEB is required for most 1st parts and solos. A minimum Grade 3 AMEB level for the 2nd/3rd parts.

Grade 5/6 for strings is recommended.

Players should be comfortable playing in all keys up to 4 sharps and 4 flats.

 

IMPORTANT: Very good ability in sight-reading is highly recommended for this intensive 3-day camp.

Vocalists will need to be able to sing in tune and have experience in part-singing. If you love singing Jazz (or  want to!) this is for you. Being able to read music is a distinct advantage, but not essential if you are a quick learner. Soloists will be auditioned during the camp.

Where is it being held?  

Our first TRYO Jazz Camp will be held at the Neil St Centre, 10 Neil St, Toowoomba - current home of TRYO

Who can attend the Finale Concert and how do we book tickets? 

The concert is open to all family and friends of camp participants. Ticket bookings to be advised.

We will be holding the concert in the early evening of the last day, Saturday 22nd September.
