Northern Colorado Fiddle Camp 2016
July 11, 2016 @ 9:00 am - July 15, 2016 @ 12:00 pm UTC-7
It’s time to register for the 6th Annual Northern Colorado Fiddle Camp! Registration is now open for one of my favorite teaching events of the summer. It’s hard to believe that we have been doing this for the last 6 years.
This is a very hands-on fiddle camp. We will only be taking 12 students for each session. (It is possible to register for both sessions, and most of the attendees do.)
Cody Stadelmaier and I will be teaching fiddlers of all ages for 5 days at Magnolia Music Studio in Old Town – Fort Collins, CO.
* NOTE: We have changed the camp dates to better coincide with the Central Rockies Oldtime Music Association Festival, which happens the 4 days prior to our fiddle camp. So, now you can attend the CROMA Festival, and follow it up with fiddle camp. What could be better?
Students will receive lessons on new tunes, as well as practical music theory, playing harmony, accompaniment, and coaching on tunes they are currently working on.
This camp is open to students from age 7 to adult.

I thought you might be interested in seeing a couple of videos of me and Cody playing and teaching. I’m looking forward to seeing you in July!
