Louisville Jazz Workshop 2023

July 15–23

I am very pleased to announce the second edition of the 

LOUISVILLE JAZZ WORKSHOP with registration opening on 

December 1 @ LouisvilleJazzWorkshops.com

The Louisville Jazz Workshop 2023 will build upon the very successful 2022 edition with:

  • morning jam sessions
  • master classes specifically designed for participants
  • visiting guest artists/educators
  • special events focused on the world of jazz
  • early evening concerts featuring guest artists and rehearsed ensembles
  • extended combo sessions 

Returning will be a faculty of proven jazz educators/performers who will be joined by master jazz artists, each interacting closely with all participants.  Our staff will be comprised of graduate jazz students who will assist participants and faculty.  

Like in 2022, we will be keeping the limited enrollment in 2023:

  • to ensure everyone’s safety
  • to promote individual attention
  •  to better balance the combo experience

To that end the goal is for six groups – thus room for: 

  • 6 pianists
  • 6 guitarists
  • 6 bassists
  • 6 drummers 
  • 24 to 28 non-rhythm section players. 

Once the goal of 6 complete rhythm sections is met, we can add one additional group but there will be no more than 7 combos, with no more 

than 50 to 56 participants.

While expenses have increased, everything has been done to keep the fee affordable and there is a way to attend at last year’s fee. 

  • The fee for the 2023 weeklong workshop – July 16-21 – is $850
  • A $100 discount for registering and paying in full before February 15, 2023.  That means $750, the same cost as in 2022 to those who register early.  
  • $100 non-refundable deposit to hold a place in the workshop.
  • Balance due by June 15 (a month before the workshop), an extension to the first day of the workshop is possible upon request.

There will once again be Mini-Workshops.  Those are:

  • July 15-16 – Vocal Jazz I    and    All Things Guitar
  • July 22-23 – Vocal Jazz II   and    Brazilian Jazz
  • The fee for each is $300, the same as in 2022

Feel free to contact me for any questions.  Look for updates

Remember registration is limited.  

Don’t miss out, make plans to register on December 1 @ LouisvilleJazzWorkshops.com.  

Time to play Jazz.  Hope to be playing jazz with you in July 2023.
