Jazz Mentor Fellowship Program

Another benefit for young musicians attending Jazz Camp is working with the Jazz Mentor Fellows. This group of talented interns is selected every two years from a pool of applicants representing the top young jazz artists in the country. They are chosen not only for their outstanding jazz artistry and instrumental or vocal mastery, but also for their interest in and dedication to becoming the leaders of a new generation of jazz educators.

The Mentor Fellows themselves get mentored by top educators such as Dr. Peter John Stoltzman and Dr. Victor Lin, as well as artists such as Wycliffe Gordon, Regina Carter, Marcus Belgrave, Matt Wilson, Jimmy Heath, Donald Harrison, Geoff Keezer, Junior Mance, Charles McPherson, Tootie Heath, and Ndugu Chancler.
