The Campfire Guitar Kids

The Campfire Kids Guitar 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.

Topics explored include:

  • Open Position Chords
  • Bass Lines
  • Singing while Playing
  • Simple Melodies
  • Basic Lead Technique
  • Percussive Accompaniment

No experience is necessary, however basic guitar technique is helpful. Enrollees are required to have their own instrument and a capo.
