Beyond instrument instruction, for the past 10 years we have also offered full-time songwriting and vocal classes. In 2019, we are excited to welcome songwriting instructor Kristin Andreassen (of Uncle Earl) and vocal instructor Stephen Mougin (of Sam Bush Band).

Songwriting & Vocals

The Vocal class will focus on vocal techniques and repertoire for all participants. Songwriting students are encouraged to compose songs with lyrics and music, arrange songs for lead and harmony vocals, and perform the songs by the end of the week.

For both the songwriting and vocal classes, there will be two group sessions per day, mentoring time and electives offered during the week. Here is a sample schedule for the week:
