Registration underway for Reggie Shive Jazz Camp at Iowa Lakes Community College 

Iowa Lakes Community College will hold the Reggie Schive Jazz Camp June 16-20 on the Estherville Campus.

Instrumental Music Professor Carol Ayres says, the camp is aimed at students in grades 7-12 and is for all abilities.  "We keep them busy from 8 to 4 or 5 o'clock in the afternoon.  They have big band rehearsal, they have combo rehearsal, they have music theory, where they sit in class and learn about chords and improvisation.  Then we have instrument class which, all the trumpets players go together, all the guitar players go together, trombones, saxes, and then they get private lessons.  That's one thing about our camp, the private lessons are included in the cost of the camp.  We jam pack it.  We do all kinds of fun camp things too, but we're also pretty intense on the music side.  We have from beginners to advanced players so don't be afraid to send somebody who is just learning, and don't be afraid to send somebody who's really very good."

The camp is limited to the first 150 students.
