As long as you can play a couple of simple tunes on fiddle, mandolin, guitar, banjo, ukulele or upright bass, we have a class and instructor for you! Our 2017 instruction will include classes in Appalachian old-time fiddle and banjo, Texas-style fiddle and backup guitar, traditional and progressive bluegrass styles, flat-pick and rhythm guitar, swing and bluegrass mandolin, traditional and swing 'ukulele, basic bass rhythms and techniques, band dynamics, harmony vocals, song writing, and other specialized workshops.
JFFC Honors acoustic music traditions as well as musical innovation. People from 8 to 88 come to our camp for a variety of reasons. While everyone seeks fun and instruction, we are particularly sensitive to:
- Classical musicians seeking more comfort playing "off the page"
- Young musicians hoping to broaden their skills, interests and repertoires
- Middle-age and senior instrumentalists who wish to rejuvenate their skills and expand their network of musical friend
- Advanced fiddlers and pickers who seek to take their skills to the next level
