About the event

Since 2002, the High Point Arts Council has honored the legacy of legendary jazz saxophonist John Coltrane by hosting the John Coltrane Jazz Workshop (JCJW) for talented youth in our community.

This summer, from July 22nd to July 26th, 2024, high school students with exceptional musical ability in bass, percussion, guitar/keyboard, brass (trumpet, trombone), or woodwind instruments (clarinet, flute, saxophone) are invited to join us for a jazz summer workshop. To be eligible, students must have multiple years of band experience or private lessons and be proficient in reading music. 

Partial and full scholarships are available for qualified applicants.

The workshop will run from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at Penn-Griffin School for the Arts, located at 825 E. Washington Street in High Point. 

The registration fee is $160. 

Throughout the week, students will focus on small group ensemble playing, jazz theory, improvisation, and listening skills.

On July 26th at 7:00 p.m., students will showcase their talents in a free jazz concert for the community, proudly wearing t-shirts provided during the workshop.

The deadline to register for the Annual John Coltrane Jazz Workshop is June 30th, 2024.
