Charlotte’s Jazz Arts Initiative is gearing up for its annual JazzArts Music Camp by providing more scholarships for students in grades 7-12 who want to attend the one-week music-training program.

The 2014 JazzArts Music Camp will feature internationally renowned and Grammy-nominated jazz trumpeter Christian Scott and will be held June 16–20 at UNC Charlotte’s Center City Campus.

“Spending time with a jazz artist the caliber of Christian Scott will be a once-in-a-lifetime experience for our students interested in learning more about jazz and jazz improvisation,” said Jazz Arts Initiative President Lonnie Davis. “We encourage students from all over North and South Carolina to register soon for a true hands-on learning experience they will never forget.”

Camp tuition for the week is $285. In an effort to make the opportunity accessible to more students, JAI is offering more financial aid scholarships this summer, covering up to 90 percent of the cost on a need-based sliding scale determined by family size and household income. Funds are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

For more information about the camp and available scholarships, email info@theJazzArts.org or call (704) 336-9350.
