Whether you have been playing for six months or six years, our guitar workshop will provide a significant exposure to new techniques, styles and musicianship skills. Your schedule will include electives, masterclasses, music theory, "guitar orchestra" ensemble experiences, chord studies, individual practice, jam sessions and more. See below for a sample daily schedule and visit our electives page to view the current elective choices.
Students do not need to know how to read music to attend this camp. And you can play either acoustic guitar, electric guitar or both!

It is a relaxed audition used to aid us in providing a personalized learning experience at camp.
