Grass Valley, CA May 20, 2019 – The Whole Music Camp is ramping up for year two of their weekend workshop this July 20-21, 2019, featuring a roster of talented teachers from Nevada County and an array of string classes, jam sessions, and mountain recreation on offer for students. Registration is required and closes Sunday, June 9th.
All ages are invited to this family-style workshop hosted at Camp Winthers’ 80-acre private campus in Soda Springs, CA. Saturday’s workshop includes intensive traditional music instruction in small group classes, an end-of-camp group jam session, breakfast and lunch, and a stunning campus for playing music, swimming, and exploring. Campers who choose to stay overnight will enjoy a homemade organic dinner and our second annual Whole Music Camp storytelling slam, plus ample free time in the evening for hiking, musical jams, a campfire, and more.
“For anyone seeking an open, accepting, and instructive place to play traditional music together and improve your skills, we invite you to join us at camp. There’s a place for everyone in our program. You’ll connect with teachers who will meet you at your ability level and are involved simply for the love of playing music,” says director Amie Ferrier.
The Whole Music Camp offers a blend of technical instruction and ear training, and welcomes anyone with a basic proficiency to join. Enrollment is open on their website, www.wholemusiccamp.com, and will close on Sunday, June 9th. This year’s Whole Music Camp runs July 20-21, 2019.
