We believe that learning music is a perfect way to enrich a young person's life. The rewards and benefits gained by dedication to an art form such as playing guitar teaches appreciation, boosts confidence, and gives the student a skill they can use for a lifetime.
Our camp offers classes for beginners, intermediate and advanced students, with games, events for students and parents, and free concerts by guest musicians every day!
Concert schedule for the 2017 June camp! All shows are 1:30-2pm:
Mon: The Merles! The Merles are a classic country band based out of Austin, TX featuring singer/songwriter Todd Deatherage and camp favorite Phil Spencer. The band strives to create a stripped-down sound with twangy guitars, pedal steel, upright bass, and tight vocal harmonies.
