California Coast Music Camp

California Coast Music Camp

The California Coast Music Camp offers two, week-long sessions this summer, from July 9-15, and July 16-22, 2006.

Mandolinists Steve Smith (week one) and Mike Compton (week two) will be teaching, as well as many other nationally recognized artists. CCMC provides small group instruction in guitar, mandolin, bass, voice, fiddle, banjo, percussion, and songwriting in a variety of styles—folk, blues, bluegrass, swing, jazz, and Brazilian.

In addition to classes, CCMC provides around-the-clock musical opportunities such as jams, song circles, open mikes, concerts, workshops, and dances. When participants are not playing music they can swim in the Gualala River, take hikes, or relax under giant Redwood trees.

The camp is located in beautiful Sonoma County a few miles inland from the Pacific Ocean. Now in its 15th year, CCMC is known for excellence in teaching and commitment to encouraging students to play to the best of their ability, whatever their level. There are still spaces available for this summer.
