We at the Brownville Jazz Retreat believe strongly that the apprenticeship model should play a strong role in instruction. We know that having the “Cats in the Classrooms” provides a foundation for a new generation of practitioners of this American born art form, JAZZ.

 We encourage beginners to seasoned professionals to attend our camp. BJR is focused on looking at the soloist and rhythm section bond.

The demands upon rhythm sections are many and it requires and deserves special attention. For this purpose, we have engaged a professional, award winning rhythm section, the Jeff Hamilton Trio. They will give participants focused instruction that will explore the concepts, techniques and unique relationships between the players. Further instruction on jazz relationships for soloists and accompanists will be John Clayton (Instrumental) and Dee Daniels (Vocal). They will guide participants on band stand engagement and a variety of performance topics

Join us as we create a space and place for growth, connection and unity.

Brownville Jazz Retreat’s Voice and the Anatomy of the Rhythm Section is sure to be an exciting event. Click on our Facebook page to stay informed of all the event happenings, programming and other details. Don’t forget to invite your friends!
