Bluegrass Boot Camp - This class is for newcomers, no skills required.  Students will have a class on each instrument:  guitar, mandolin, banjo, and fiddle.

Beginner Plus - This class is a continuation of the beginner class for students who participated in the Spring 2018 session.

Intermediate - Beginner students that have completed two semesters and are ready to expand upon the skills learned.  

Bluegrass Band -  This class is for musicians and singers and will teach you how to play with others as the group learns songs together. You will learn how to arrange the song, pick the best key for the song, play along with different instruments and singers, and perform together at a local nursing home. We hope this experience will create relationships, spur bands to form, and make more music in our area and beyond. 

You must have basic playing knowledge of your instrument or singing.  Instruments will be acoustic only or small percussion. The styles covered will be bluegrass and country. Professional musicians and teachers will lead the class.
