Music Camp All-Stars 2013

Levels, Classes, & Instructors for 2015


Level 1: Advanced beginner. By this we mean that you already know the basics of how to play your instrument (and tune it!) and can play some songs or tunes, if not up to tempo, at least not agonizingly slowly.

Level 2: Intermediate. By this we mean that you are quite comfortable with your instrument, and have at least some experience playing with other people. And you tune without even being asked!

Level 3: Upper intermediate. You should have at least two years of playing experience, including some experience playing with others in jam sessions or in bands.


If you’re uncertain which level is right for you, consider whether you’d rather take it slow and easy, or be more challenged, and sign up accordingly. We will allow for some adjustments as needed the first day.
