Standard Bank Joy of Jazz has this year introduced Jazz Camps aimed at secondary school learners who are considering pursuing a career in the music industry. These will now become an annual occurrence and take part just before the start of the festival.

Many school learners dream about a career in the music industry but have little knowledge and understanding of how the industry works. These camps will take the form of a ‘mini-conference’ providing students with an opportunity to learn more about the different careers in the industry, how to access them and what the challenges are. More than 400 learners are expected to attend the two events.

Says Joy of Jazz producer and T-Musicman’s general manager Mantwa Odutayo, “Each and every worker and professional in the music business is a special part of the overall picture, ultimately making the end product (whether it’s show or a recording) that much better.”

The jazz camps will take place on Thursday, 11 August in Gauteng. Standard Bank Joy of Jazz has worked closely with the Gauteng Provincial Department of Sports, Recreation, Arts and Culture in sourcing and pairing schools from the magnet schools that align with the programme.

One of the highlights of the Jazz Camps will be a visit by established artists such as Ringo and Concorde Nkabinde who will share their successes and challenges with the learners. The programme will conclude with a question and answer session.

For more information on the camps contact Rosie Katz 083 266-2367 or email reception[AT]
