Old-time Jam Camp
Date: Sunday, Sep 24 - Saturday, Sep 30, 2017
Subject: Music, Dance
Instructor: Michael IsmerioBen Nelson
Share:

Join an old-time mini festival! Working in large and small groups, we'll explore Southern Appalachian old-time social music: dance tunes, songs, ballads, gospel numbers, children's songs...maybe even dance some squares! Our focus will be understanding the subtleties and unspoken rules of jamming with others. Learn to hold a steady rhythm, hear chord changes and melodic patterns, play in alternate tunings, and catch variations "on the fly." All string instruments are welcome. (Level 3; Intermediate - can play 10 or more tunes, perhaps not quite up to tempo.)

Prior to registering, please read our General Information and Policies.

Tuition: $630.00
Since this class starts within 30 days, the tuition needs to be paid in full.
