At the Birthplace of Country Music Museum’s Pick Along String Instrument Summer Camp not only will your child learn about Bristol’s important role in the history of country music history and its lasting influence, they’ll also receive instruction in how to play a string instrument.
Children will get instruction on several of the same style instruments that were used in the 1927 Bristol Sessions recordings (including banjo, acoustic guitar and fiddle), then learn fundamental skills in various music styles. Campers will explore the Birthplace of Country Music Museum, learn about the music of Bristol and our region, receive instruction in singing and dancing, and be introduced to other concepts and disciplines that make up the rich tapestry of country music.
No previous musical experience is required for Pick Along Summer Camps, only interest in music and a desire to learn and have fun! This camp is designed for beginners and anyone interested in our musical heritage. Whether you know just a little or absolutely nothing, this is the place for you!
Class size is limited.
Our professionally trained museum staff ensures a fun, safe, and enriching environment for music instruction as well as museum play, theme-related activities and experiments, and healthy snacks and friendship building opportunities for everyone.
