Guitar Boot Camp 2012!

I am very excited to announce the dates for the 7th year of Guitar Boot Camp!  The program will take place in the music facilities at the Pingree School in Hamilton.  We have two sessions this time around:

Students Finishing 6th through 8th grade: July 9 – July 13 + Saturday, July 14 performance

Students Finishing 9th through 12th grade: July 16 – July 20 + Saturday, July 21 performance

Each session will focus on the following:

  • Morning Warm-up
  • Technique Building Exercises
  • Fretboard Knowledge and Theory
  • Songwriting
  • How to get the most out of your guitar, amps, and effects pedals

In addition to the daily guitar workouts listed above, each class will be broken up into songwriting groups.    Each piece (or pieces) the group writes will be performed on the last day of the session. The students will also work in Pingree’s digital recording lab and learn to record, edit, and mix the song they write.  Each student will bring home a CD at the end of the week with all of the in-class practice examples as well as the song(s) written in class.

Lunch will be provided by the Pingree School Dining Services.  In addition, all equipment and materials for the class will be provided – all you need is your guitar!

Class will take place from 9:30 to 3:30 each day.  The class is $375 and includes all meals and materials (there is a $25 discount if you sign-up before April 1st!).  If you are in need of transportation to or from the camp, I will be carpooling from my studio and the Georgetown Park and Ride for no additional fee (I am happy to make addition stops if they are on our route to school).

Please e-mail me with any questions!  To see the course on the Pingree site, please click below:
