Classes

Participants will be able to choose from 12–14 classes each day. Classes lasts an hour and fifteen minutes on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, and one hour on Sunday.

Classes are held at the same time each day with a break between classes.

Classes are rated roughly Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced and ALL.

If a class isn’t exactly what you’re looking for, you may change and go to a different one. Just please pack up and leave quietly, so as to not disturb the other players.

You may take any class you choose from whomever you like. Each instructor leads 3-4 individual classes per day.

Class size depends on the instructor and subject matter. Subject matter changes from class to class, but instructors will remain in their assigned room for teaching.

While instructors provide handouts, you can also learn by rote or through a “call and response” method. Some teachers bring music and tab, others don’t.

Also, you can ask instructors if you can record classes, so you can revisit that information after camp is over. Please just ask their permission first.

Signing up for a one-on-one tutorial with your favorite instructor will also be available.

Also, we have our roving camp adjunct instructor available throughout the day to answer any questions and work with you individually.

The Instructor Concert will be recorded professionally, and we request that you do not record it yourselves.

There will be an organized slow jam every day for you to work on learning tunes, perfecting those breaks, and interacting with other players in a supportive and fun atmosphere.
