    I am currently looking into Eastman at University of Rochester and NYSMF for a summer jazz camp. Any knowledge on these camps or others around the NY area?
    Opinions? Experience? Thanks in advance:play:

    Hochstein is always good.
    Band Camp at Fredonia.

    Where are you from, if you don't mind me asking? You're the first person I've met on here from WNY.

    Oh, that's a ways away.
    But still in upstate NY!

    I was thinking about a jazz camp. That'd be fun.

    On the same topic, are there any teachers around the Buffalo/Rochester area that'd give lessons over the summer? I'm looking for a teacher, because summer lessons at school just don't cut it anymore. Especially when my director plays trombone, and doesn't know squat about trumpet.

    The Litchfield Jazz Camp in CT is absolutely amazing! I've had a few students attend and it really transformed their playing.

    NYSMF is great. Very well rounded. If you are looking for jazz only, Litchfield or Stamford (Young Artists Jazz Camp) are excellent.

    If you go to Rochester, in your spare time, look for The House of Guitars. It is a super mega music store. They probably won't have trumpets, but it's a unique privately owned store, with a colossal collection of recorded music for sale.
