About

bob_aboutSince 1998, the week-long Lafayette Summer Music Workshop has provided 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!

LSMW is supported by the Generations in Jazz Foundation, and this year will be held at Acalanes High School in Lafayette. This year’s workshop runs July 30-August 4, 2017. Click here for placement audition information. Have another question? Drop us an e-mail.
