Church Retreat in Alabama February 6-8, 2015

Bluegrass Music Camp!
Classical music is fun and so are Suzuki lessons, so you should definitely give Bluegrass music a chance. Join us if you have a guitar, mandolin, fiddle/violin, banjo, bass, or cello to learn the basics of Bluegrass and American/Irish folk music. Delve into this incredible summer experience working with experienced teachers and performers.

We will conclude the week with a performance. Students should have at least 6 months study on their instruments. For those of you who play in the Suzuki books, you should be in the second half of book 1 or higher.

It's going to be lots of fun, it will give you a chance to learn to play with a band, and what a way to get motivated to play your instrument this summer!
