CLASS FULL Summer Camp – Week #1 Beginners

June 18, 2018 @ 12:00 am - June 22, 2018 @ 11:59 pm

Registration for Week #1 of Pick Along Summer Camp is now closed

Week 1: June 18-22
Type: String Instrument Camp – Beginner Level (for first-time campers or those who would like to go through the basics again)
Ages: 8-14

The Birthplace of Country Music Museum’s Pick Along Summer Camps are back! Not only will your child learn about Bristol’s important role in country music history and its lasting influence on the music of today, but they will also learn the skills necessary to play an instrument!

Children ages 8 to 14 will receive expert instruction on the same style of instruments that were used in the 1927 Bristol Sessions recordings, learning how to play music and fundamental skills in various music styles. Campers will also explore the Birthplace of Country Music Museum, learn about the music of Bristol and our region, receive instruction in singing and dancing, get an introduction to our working radio station, and learn about 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 an interest in music and a desire to learn and have fun! These camps are designed for different levels of experience and anyone interested in our musical heritage. Whether your camper knows just a little or absolutely nothing, this is the place to be!

Class size is limited so register now to reserve space.
