  • Most classes and workshops are hands-on, while a few are lectures or demonstrations.

  • Faculty concerts on Friday and Saturday after dinner and before evening jams.
  • Lots of informal opportunities to “pick” with faculty and other students.
  • Camaraderie with other people who share your passion for the guitar, mandolin, or Dobro®.
