The idea for Chicago Joe’s Rock ‘n Blues Camp began in the spring of 2005. “Chicago” Joe Jones was encouraged to start the camp by the parents of some of his students, who believe his approach to teaching and performing merits a wider audience. They believe Joe possesses a unique set of skills and qualities that make him unusually qualified to lead a camp for young musicians who wish to explore first hand the experience of being in a band and playing rock and roll, blues, and jazz. Perhaps a level of skill which has come from a lifetime of teaching kids, nevertheless his combination of patience, understanding and just plain “cool” makes him a special person to all of his students.
Since the beginning we have been fortunate to have other faculty join us that have the same ability to connect with young people. Our staff consists of renown teachers and performers who share the same dedication to teaching, enjoy the students immensely and have a performance-oriented style. We keep our camp small in order to have direct contact with all of the campers and meet their individual musical needs.
All of us at Chicago Joe’s Rock ‘n Blues Camp are dedicated to the development of young musicians. Although we expect our campers to work hard during the week, we know that when they perform their program at the end of the week, the pride and excitement they and their parents will experience will make it all extremely worthwhile.
