Violin, viola, cello, mandolin, and guitar players learn tunes and techniques from a variety of traditions such as Bluegrass, Scottish, Jazz, Appalachian, Irish, and Blues.
The days begin with a live get together we call Round Up. Students then learn from video lessons that our teachers prepare in advance on americanfiddlemethod.com. The day ends with Office Hours where teachers are available for live, one-on-one help.
The camp culminates with a recording project and a video recital. In addition to instrumental classes, this year we are adding a step dance and audio engineering class. Those that complete all of the classes and tasks will receive a special graduation award. Students will have access to the lessons for one year.
