Artist & Educational Workshops
Designed to entertain, inspire, educate and inform, the Lionel Hampton Jazz Festival workshops allow participants to closely interact with world-renowned artists and educators as they present on a variety of jazz related topics.
Workshops are themed to help students focus on their individualized educational goals while attending the festival. Artists, clinicians, and Lionel Hampton School of Music faculty share their knowledge on jazz pedagogy, improvisation, vocal and instrumental performance practice, arranging, music business and more. Faculty across other areas of the University of Idaho present Thinking About College workshops designed to discuss how music can be intertwined with other disciplines like science, law, history, and math. Dance workshops led by U of I Dance faculty, guest artists and specialty dance instructors energize students and engage them in jazz-related “hands-and-feet on” experiences. Suffice to say, there is something for everyone.
These hour-long presentations are free for participating students. We hope that everyone will enjoy the chance to work up close with these incredible professionals as they share their life experiences.
