16 Week Core Classes
Fall ~ September to January
Spring ~ February to June
Campfire Guitar Bootcamp 101 for Adults
Students enrolled in Campfire Bootcamp 101 will be given the opportunity to play and sing fun, varied songs with other people and will be given instruction for various ways to approach accompaniment. The songs will be kept simple to afford greater, relaxed expression and more material.
Campfire Guitar Bootcamp 101 for Youth
The Campfire Guitar for Youth Class for 9-15 year olds is a spinoff of the popular Campfire Bootcamp 101 for adults. Whether just beginning or experienced, students are given the opportunity to play and sing fun, varied songs appropriate to their age group. The songs are written out in an easy to understand format with basic instruction on how to approach accompaniment and soloing. Variations are included on how to expand those techniques to ensure all students reach their potential. Class size is kept small so students receive personalized instruction and the setlist is chosen primarily by the students.
Garage Band Revival for Adults
This isn’t a class as much as it is a great place to get together in small groups to play and share music. It will complement the Campfire Guitar Bootcamp 101 well in that there will only be 1 meeting/month and rather than learning a pile of songs and riding the wave in a big group weekly. There will only be a handful of songs, small groups and proper arrangements. Experiment with songwriting and learn the ins and outs of making arrangements.
Fall ~ September to December
Winter ~ January to March
Spring ~ April to June
How many strings does this thing have? You will learn this and so much more in this class.
This class is for the adult complete beginner who has never picked up the guitar or only knows a few chords and is having trouble making it sound like something anyone but your mother can love.
Slide Guitar w/ Tim Williams
Americana FingerStyle Guitar w/ Tim Williams
The term “Americana” covers a broad range of contemporary genres. The course will touch on Blues, Rockabilly, Travis Picking, Hawaiaan Slack Key, Classic Singer-Songwriter accompaniment styles, and much more. Students need to be competent with first position chords and open to learning new variations, and willing to put in the time to “divorce” the picking thumb from the fingers (sometimes referred to as thumb independence). A sense of fun and musical adventure is also always an asset.
