Where is the ijamjazz camp?

The ijamjazz camp takes place in Bonefro, a small Italian village near the Adriatic coast and four hours from Rome by car. Bonefro (Campobasso province) is in the picturesque Molise region of Italy.


Students live and work in a two-story XVI century Franciscan monastery (Il Convento). Students live on the second floor in shared furnished rooms (three to six beds per room). Important: see and print out 2008 Student Handbook. Many of the rooms have panoramic views of the local countryside stretching out to the Adriatic coast. Spanning over 30,000 square feet, this historic building was specially restored in 1998 for the inaugural summer of the Adriatic Chamber Music Festival.

The building sits on a foundation that dates back to the town's origins, nearly 2,000 years ago. Today, Il Convento serves primarily as the main residence for the Adriatic Chamber Music Festival and, since 2007, the ijamjazz Summer Jazz Camp. All classes are taught in English.

The ijamjazz camp is a three-week theory and improvisational intensive in which beginning, intermediate, and advanced students have an opportunity to study and perform with internationally renowned artists and faculty.

Week one consists of morning and afternoon theory classes and ensemble sessions directed by Dr. Barbieri. During the ensemble sessions, students will rehearse charts that reflect theoretical concepts presented in the theory classes. The instrumental instructors arrive for weeks two and three, during which time they will conduct instrumental lessons, jazz ensemble, and master classes.

Class size, small and personal, is limited to three students per instrumental category: keyboard, guitar, drums, trumpet (trombone players welcomed), sax (tenor, alto, or soprano), flute, and bass (double bass or bass guitar). Keyboards, drum kits, double basses, and amplifiers are provided.


The curriculum includes theory classes, improvisation/instrumental class instruction, combo/ensemble sessions, master classes given by members of the faculty, and student/faculty performances. In a three-week period, students are taken on a comprehensive journey through jazz theory and improvisation. See ijamjazz Theory Manual: Table Of Contents. In addition, beginning in week two, students have the opportunity to apply their craft during concerts in the region's town piazzas.


College credit through the University of Colorado, Boulder is available; an additional fee is charged by the University. In 2007, three students from the ijamjazz summer camp requested and received credit. In 2008, the ijamjazz summer jazz camp will be listed in the University of Colorado’s summer catalogue.

Jaijai, what a wonderful mission you've undertaken to create such a place for artistic minds to meet and share their hearts. A place to renew faded determinations, and revive lessened momentums. A place to display our wares and reconfirm to one another that we actually are on the right track.

I commend you, Jaijai, for caring so much that you created this castle of the heart for all of us. I want to share my praise for all of the new friends as well as old friends that I've met and will meet here in our castle. Here we can garnish the where-with-all, the strength, the conviction, and the selflessness through our symbiosis, to share our gift to the world with an unbiased agenda.

My mentor, Daisaku Ikeda says of art: "A beautiful flower delights and refreshes the hearts of all people equally, no matter what soil it grows in. That is the power of beauty. The same is true of great art. It is this spirit that the German poet Heinrich Heine sang of when he wrote that once the peapod bursts open, the sugar peas inside are for everyone to enjoy."

Let's be audacious, my friends!
