University of Manitoba Jazz Camp - 2014 dates TBA
A jazz experience for all ages: Junior and Senior High School and University Students, Instrumental and Vocal Musicians, and Music Educators with an interest in Jazz.
The University of Manitoba Jazz Camp strives to foster the growth and development of jazz skills. Enrolment is open to anyone with an interest in furthering their jazz performance skills. Junior and senior high students, university students, jazz musicians and music educators are all encouraged to attend.
The camp will strive to achieve an instructor/student ratio of 1:10 to ensure a personalized experience for every participant.
Learning is based on the small ensemble setting. Students will work on the concept of rhythmic interaction, dynamic interplay, and call and response. Students will likewise develop improvisation techniques while building their jazz repertoire. Chord symbols, song form, chord progressions, and ear training will be covered.
Vocalists will be grouped together to focus on the skills and concepts essential for the solo jazz singer, and will perform as soloists with an experienced rhythm section. They will work on the skills and concepts that a jazz vocalist needs to master:
Concerts integral to the Jazz Camp are the Cool Wednesday Night Hang, the Winnipeg Art Gallery Jazz Concert, and Student Finale concerts.
More than ever! Up to twenty scholarships are available to band and choral programs in Manitoba. Each school is eligible to award a $50.00 scholarship to a deserving student based on the music instructor's recommendation.

Introduction to University is a great introduction to study and life at the University of Manitoba. It counts for 3 credits towards your degree and meets the Written English requirement that is compulsory for UM students. Smaller class sizes in Summer Session (maximum enrolment of 30 students) makes getting to know the professor and other students much easier – and gives you the individual attention that you need at the start of your university career. Summer University Advantage allows students to form a sense of community with other students during the more relaxed campus environment in summer. As well, students have the opportunity to engage in discussion with faculty members, receive individualized attention from support staff and advisors, and participate in academic skill-building workshops.
The experience will start with an orientation session. The orientation will introduce students to the U of M, including the library, classroom and research facilities, academic support services, and campus computing facilities. Also, students will participate in skill-building workshops designed to improve their skills in essay writing, note taking, examination preparation, critical thinking, and time management. Throughout the Summer Session, students will have the opportunity to meet select faculty members to acquaint them with various areas of study and research at the U of M.
ARTS 1110 - Introduction to University dates for 2014 TBA.
Students who have been admitted to the University by June 30 are eligible to participate in Summer University Advantage.
