Over the past few decades, we’ve seen jazz education move from the bandstand to the classroom — and we’ve watched women move from the audience to the stage.

As an initiative to support these musicians, the Geri Allen Jazz Camp is a one-week immersion program designed to help refine technique, grow confidence and build community among performers who identify as female or non-binary.

Multiple Grammy-nominated and internationally renowned violinist and composer Regina Carter is the artistic director of this camp, and she joined us to tell us more about it.
