The Shed-PSU's 3rd Annual Summer Jazz Camp

 I'm getting geared up for our 3rd annual jazz camp. Our special guest, Dr, Alex Norris, is one of the greatest musicians you will ever meet. There are few trumpet players with as much information. His improvisational vocabulary rivals saxophone players! Additionally, we are happy to have another special guest: bassist David Ephross, who has been on the New York scene for over 20 years. The camp is geared towards all levels. We hope to see you there!

Now in its 3rd year, Portland State University’s  Summer Jazz Intensive Workshop is open to high school, college and adult instrumentalists. “The Shed” is based around a select repertoire of jazz tunes. We accept students of all levels and ages. Activities include jam sessions, coached ensemble sessions, masterclasses, lectures, group lessons, and concerts. It’s a great way to develop your skills as a jazz improviser in a fun and friendly environment.
Our special guest this year is trumpeter Alex Norris. Dr. Norris has spent 2 decades in New York playing with many of the greats in jazz, including Joshua Redman, Brad Mehldau, Chris Potter, Stefon, Harris, Carl Allen, Eric Alexander, John Pattitucci, and Brian Blade. Additionally, in the Pop/R&B world, Norris has toured and/or recorded with Incognito, US3, Philip Bailey, Steve Winwood, Gloria Estefan & Miami Sound Machine, and Jon Secada.
Workshop Tuition plus $368.60 PSU Tuition & Fees
Limited scholarships available.
Students will audition for placement in combos on Monday morning, July 14th.
