About the Workshops
Each of the workshops are designed around your interests and skill level. Registrants will submit a survey with their registration that will serve as our guide in designing the course curriculum. Each instrument workshop is limited to 50 participants.

All skill levels are welcome. Each instrument group will break out into smaller groups to insure that all skill levels are covered. There will be experienced musicians on hand to provide support to the instructors in each of the instrument workshops.

Open forum - all students are encouraged to ask questions at any time. However, the sessions will be moderated to prevent anyone from taking over the session.

There will be plenty of time for jamming on Friday night and after the concert on Saturday, so invite your pickin' buddies to come along for the weekend, even if they are not attending the workshops.

The All-Star Jam will be Saturday night at 7:00pm at the Paramount Theater in Burlington, NC. The show is open to the public. Workshop attendees are admitted free. Ticket prices are $10 advance, $12 door. Call (336) 222-TIXS for tickets. The concert will feature our instructors: Scott Vestal, Kenny Smith, Alan Bibey and Blueridge, with special appearances by some of our students!

Hey thanks, Scotti. I'm actually gonna ask Alan if he needs an extra guy to handle the mundane chores, ya know, like tune up his Loar, change the strings on his Loar, chunk rhythm on his tunes, that sort of thing . http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif
