Mission

Founded in 2011 by Ken McGloin and Bill Fiore, PDS Jazz Camp serves students from various school districts throughout Dutchess, Ulster and beyond during a 1 week session on the beautiful campus of Poughkeepsie Day School, New York. We have a faculty of talented jazz musicians that are both teachers and working artists. PDS Jazz Camp welcomes all learners: students 12 years to 18, beginners, intermediate and advanced players. It is important to us that the atmosphere at PDS Jazz Camp is supportive, collaborative and fun. We would love to have your child join us and discover all that Jazz music and our camp has to offer!
