The Shedd’s Acoustic Guitar Camp is designed to meet the needs of students at all levels and skills and to provide superb instruction as well as inspiration. For one week, students will meet for four hours a day, receiving instruction in small group settings of 5-10 students during their chosen electives and ensemble groups, as well as exposure to different styles of guitar during daily presentations by our diverse staff of instructors. We will be sampling the songs of the Beatles, Bach, Buddy Holly, Billie Holiday, Blues, Bluegrass, you name it! Students will learn songs in varying styles such as, "No Expectations" by The Rolling Stones, "Yakkity Yak" by The Coasters, "Feeling Good" by Nina Simone, and "Acony Bell" by Gillian Welch.
Each morning begins with a time of students gathering and tuning instruments. Camp instructors will then lead campers into a group playing time and into their chosen elective courses. After lunch the campers will play together in their experience-based small group ensembles and end the day with playing in the large group
