Study Music with the Masters

We proud to announce the fourth annual Music Camp held in conjunction with the 29th annual conference.
The annual music camp provides learners of all ages, levels, and walks of life (teachers, students, hobbyists, and professionals) the opportunity to study with and learn from over 20 premier instructors. Classes are held Friday through Sunday, from 10 am - 4:15 pm at the Sheraton Hotel across the skywalk from the Westin Hotel where FAI's conference takes place. Click here for the full schedule of classes. 
The Music Camp is open to the public, $60 per day or $150 for 3 days. Pre-registration is recommended to guarantee space. 

Registered FAI conference delegates may attend a single class or all day, for a special registrant rate of $10 per class. Registered delegates receive a separate email with an exclusive link to register at this rate.

Beginner, intermediate, advanced, and master classes will be held for the following:

  • Old Time Banjo
  • Step Dancing
  • Flatpicking Guitar
  • Old Time Fiddle
  • African Guitar
  • Songwriting
  • And many more!

“I know as a touring musician, it is rare to find the opportunity to study with mentors and colleagues. Music Camp offers an unprecedented opportunity to all the musicians who attend Folk Alliance,” says Doug Cox, Camp Director. “The connection with Folk Alliance International’s conference provides access to an impressive lineup of instructors. It’s unlike anything I have seen, even at other music camps. I am hoping both the public and my fellow musicians will join us.”
Camp instructor and Grand Master Fiddle Champion, April Verch said, "I’m really excited to be on the staff in 2017!  This is such a great opportunity for musicians, songwriters, and performers to expand their skill set, share their passion, and find fresh inspiration.  There’s truly no better way to do all of that than at a camp like this, which is filled to the brim with talent and love for what we all do!"
