Two Sessions of Fun & Connection

JazzWire Summer Summit is one of the only jazz workshops in the country focusing on ADULT students. If you are looking for an amazing faculty, loads of fun and inspiration, an innovative curriculum and fantastic organization, you’ve found us. Participants and faculty continue to rate JazzWire Summer Summit (formally Maryland Summer Jazz) among the finest adult camps in the world. Learn and play in small combos with top recording artists, Grammy winners, YouTube personalities and university professors. Exciting electives round out the jazz camp experience. A thousand adults students from around the world who have attended The Summit can’t be wrong!

Or, you can choose to cut the commute, lose the hotels and airplanes, sit around less and play more. We have served hundreds of adult amateur and semi-pro musicians with our powerful VIRTUAL workshops, and we can’t wait to work with you online in Session 1. Session 1/Virtual is just $499, and Session 2/In Person is $925 (until April 15). Want to partake in both sessions, and attend the Virtual days as a great prep for your in person experience? It’s only $1,275 for both!

A word from Jeff our Artistic Director

The Summit & The Most Forward-Thinking Jazz Camp On Earth

For more than 20 years, we have heard two wishes at the end of camp: (1) that attendees had known about us sooner, and (2) that they could continue to accelerate their learning after returning home from camp. We’ve taken that sentiment to heart, and combined forces with, a breakthrough experience in adult jazz education that begins well before you arrive at camp, and continues long after.

When you sign up for The Summit, you will also join This platform is unique in allowing our members to post recordings for comment by instructors and other community members. You'll get actionable feedback every time you post. This daily interaction supplements the individualized Growth Plan and Evaluation you will receive upon joining.

Before the The Summit, you will have the opportunity to practice the songs we will delve into during the camp. Your fellow campers will be your friends from JazzWire. In short, you will be primed for an enjoyable, relaxed and educational camp experience. Find out more on the Workshop Information page, or visit here

Looking Forward to seeing you there!

Visit Washington, D.C.!

JazzWire Summer Summit is held in Rockville, Maryland, just a few miles from Washington, DC. Many of our participants travel from around the country and around the world to play some jazz with us, and have a stellar family vacation. You’ll attend our concerts, jam sessions, and nightly “hang-outs,” and have time before or after The Summit to visit some of the great museums and national attractions that DC is famous for. Area residents commute to The Summit, while out-of-towners stay at nearby hotels ( Click here for more info on our partner hotel). Attend both sessions of The Summit, and spend a few of the "in-between" days exploring one of the greatest cities in North America.
