August 2, 2021 - August 5, 2021
Is your Folk Army soldier ready to strengthen their musical abilities, and have fun with a passionate group of fellow music-lovers? Folk Army’s Day Camp is the perfect getaway!
The Folk Army Half-Day Songwriting Camp is an excellent way to complement your experience with Folk Army, and a great way to familiarize yourself with fellow soldiers, along with songwriting styles and techniques.
FOLK ARMY SONGWRITING CAMP
AGES 9 – 16
SONGWRITING on GUITAR & UKULELE
This half day camp is for intermediate to advance students who already have a good command of their instruments. Are you wondering if that’s you? Can you play your G or D chords on Ukulele? Can you play your F or D chords on Guitar? Then yes – this is you.
We will study rhythm, melody, and song structure, along with songwriting approaches and methods. Students can expect to work on songwriting in individual and group settings, and hopefully leave with a song of their own fully composed by the end of the course.
Registration $150 for three 1/2 day course.
