About Philmont AMC – July 3 – 8, 2022

Acoustic Music Camp is five days of fun and learning in a friendly, supportive environment. We offer classes in banjo, flatpicking guitar, mandolin, bluegrass and fiddling, and bass. We have a world-class faculty who, along with being great musicians and teachers, are great people.

We try to limit class size to 12 students per teacher, although some classes may be larger. Depending on the number of students enrolled, we are offering one to three levels for each class.

Classes are a hands-on affair. You will not just listen to a lecture but participate by playing along with the teacher. During this “organized noodling,” the instructor is giving individual attention to each student. To keep this from being a noisy, chaotic affair, please do not play while the instructor is talking. Also, when playing during exercises, do not play so loudly that your neighbor cannot hear comments from the instructor.

As with tennis, the best way to get better is to play with people better than you are. Each day will include an instructor-led jam. Each instructor will take a different level of jam (advanced, intermediate, beginning or slow) and choose tunes and tempos, and keep the jam in-line and fun.
