Campers at our teen bluegrass camp will learn the foundations and traditions of bluegrass. Students will receive instruction specific to their respective instruments, and will also have the opportunity to play in a bluegrass band. We’ll also focus on singing, songwriting, fiddle tunes and more!
Our camp is geared towards beginner and intermediate players and will include instruction for guitar, mandolin, fiddle, upright bass and banjo. We may be able to accommodate additional instruments, please inquire!
