A team of instructors joins Camp Director and founder Alex Stewart to inspire students to reach new heights of creativity and proficiency, with rich opportunities to hone individual skills and master the cooperative team effort of live performance. Students work with jazz trumpet and lunimary Ray Vega and a variety of other artist-educators. Take a clinic specific to your instrument and place into one of three combos where you'll work on applying the principles and nuances of improvisation, investigating chord structure, and developing melodic creativity. Additional Latin hand percussion workshops spice up the days and add to your growing musical toolkit.

FlynnArts Faculty

RAY VEGA A native of the South Bronx, Ray Vega is a veteran of the bands of Tito Puente, Ray Barretto, Mongo Santamaria, and Mario Bauza, to name a few. He has established himself as one of the innovators of the international jazz and Latin music scenes. A multi-talented trumpeter, percussionist, composer, arranger, and educator, he presents jazz from a refreshingly original and contemporary perspective. His records, including his self-titled debut Ray Veg, Boperation, and Pa'lante, have been well received by critics, audiences, and musicians alike. His latest CD, The Return of The East-West Trumpet Summit, was released in January of 2016 and received critical acclaim, reaching the top 20 of jazz radio airplay for five weeks (Jazzweek).
