Artist & Educational Workshops

Designed to entertain, inspire, educate and inform, clinics and workshops feature artists and educators from around the globe. Clinics and workshops are themed to help you focus on your own educational goals while attending the festival. Many workshops provide handouts and the opportunity to play and sing along with artists and educators. Please note schedules are subject to change. Please check the director’s table in the Bruce M. Pitman Center to find the most updated daily schedule. Any changes will be indicated on the door of the clinic/workshop venue daily. Workshops and clinics are stages across the University of Idaho campus and Moscow community.

Clinics and workshops feature festival artists, nationally renowned educators and University of Idaho faculty. Enjoy getting up close with festival artists and listen as they perform and talk about their music, their lives and their experiences and show many of the techniques that make them the best in the jazz world.

In past years, workshop themes have included artist features, director helps, hands-on training, new ideas, dance workshops and thinking about college. Don’t miss out on the action.

Workshop Themes

Artist Features (AF): Come and see your favorite artists up close and personal. Listen while they play, sing and share stories. Most allow audience questions, and sometimes students are invited on-stage to play with the worlds finest.

Director Helps (DH): These workshops are designed to help directors teach jazz. Directing workshops include: rehearsal techniques, elementary jazz curriculum, teaching improvisation, directing a jazz ensemble and more.

Master Classes (MC): These are workshops designed for specific instruments. Learn about fingering, tone and technique from master teachers.

Dance Workshops (DW): Join the fun in a variety of “hands- and feet-on” workshops led by university faculty, regional instructors and specialty dance instructors. Grab your dance shoes. Our swing and Latin dance classes will get you ready for the dance floor at the Saturday night concert.

Thinking About College? (TAC): The University of Idaho encourages visiting students, especially those high school students wondering about their higher education, to explore the campus by taking a campus tour or attending a workshop taught by university faculty.
