Let your child’s guitar talents soar at our 2018 Guitar Camp for both beginner and advanced guitarists. Your child, along with fellow guitar enthusiasts, will develop and expand their skills in level-specific small classes.

Each day brings technique workshops that lead to enhanced creative expression.  Topics include: learning contemporary guitar techniques, improvisation, composing a melody, and performing in an ensemble. At the conclusion of the camp, your child and fellow guitar enthusiasts will give an informal concert. Acoustic guitar preferred.
