Improvisation for all instruments
ACOUSTIC MUSIC CAMP
Minieracustica camp has developed its own unique personality, the heart of which is experiencing the pleasure of music through exchanging and sharing in a very pleasant and friendly atmosphere.
Musical traditions are constantly evolving, so in a sense, all music is both traditional and contemporary. This year, Blue Week at Minieracustica offers a unique opportunity to learn about American folk, old time and Bluegrass music from three musicians who have a deep understanding of what has been done in the past, but who are also creative and important contributors to what is happening now in American acoustic music.
Three young and talented musicians: guitarist CHRIS ELDRIDGE (Punch Brothers), banjoist WESLEY CORBETT (Joy Kills Sorrow) and violinist and singer EDEN MACADAM-SOMER.
Our teachers this year were chosen not only for their rich backgrounds and great playing, but also because they are excellent teachers with enthusiasm for sharing their experience and helping students grow.
In addition to working on technical improvements on your instrument we will work, in wider terms, on the development of musicality. This is a rare opportunity to work in a warm and supportive environment and share your music and passion.
