Lafayette Summer Music Jazz Workshop

Since 1998, the week-long Lafayette Summer Music Workshop provides an intimate and inspiring environment for learning and playing jazz. Master classes, improvisation workshops and jazz combos are led by some of the preeminent professional musicians in the field. The workshop is directed by Stanley Middle School music director Bob Athayde and jazz curriculum director Kyle Athayde. Kids – middle school, high school and college age – as well as adults have a blast!


Dear Jazz Campers, Families and Friends of Lafayette Summer Music Workshop:

The Generations in Jazz Foundation is pleased to announce that the 2021 LafSMW will be held in-person this year, July 18-23 at Stanley Middle School in Lafayette, CA! There will be some schedule changes due to COVID-19 restrictions, but we are very excited to be able to offer the Workshop in a format where musicians can play together live.
