In an exciting collaboration between Telluride Jazz Festival
Caleb Chapman's Soundhouse and Telluride Academy comes a perfect blend of music, mountains and outdoor adventures! Whether you're a local student musician or coming to town for the 42nd annual Jazz Festival, you'll be sure to find progression and play during this week long program. Each day, students will meet a musical specialist from Jazz Fest for mornings of musical instruction and interaction. Afternoons will be spent enjoying unique "backyard adventures" throughout the Telluride region. Our final day together will be spent inside the festival as we enjoy the perfected musical craft of the festival's world class lineup of musicians!
NEED A PLACE TO STAY?!?! In an effort to host students from beyond our region, we are excited to offer local accommodations for visiting students! Please contact us at 970.728.5311 to learn more about this program addition! 

The price of this program includes a student pass for the entire weekend festival.
