This is unlike any mandolin camp you've ever encountered...
In the hills just above Nashville, TN there is a house set back in the woods where people go in the late winter to learn how to play the mandolin. Only 15 campers are allowed to attend so each class is small and every camper comes away feeling like he or she had a couple of days of private lessons. And yet, friendships are made that last a lifetime. It's pretty magical.
Teachers are chosen because they are able to make special connections with their students. Meals are homemade and generally pretty southern and always delicious. You will stay on-site or travel from your home (or a local hotel) each morning and learn from the masters. In the afternoons there will be jams and workshops where you may very well find yourself picking Red Haired Boy or Big Mon knee to knee with one of the instructors. It's mind-boggling, really.
And on the last day of camp, each camper will record a special duet with one of the instructors, engineered by a real deal Nashville recording engineer right here in our own Nashville Mandolin Camp studio. This is a musical memory that you will have forever and something no other camp offers. It is a truly special experience.
We here at Nashville Mandolin Camp would like to thank the Mandolin Cafe for their support. Without their dedicated members, fearless leader, and unwavering love of the mandolin, things at Nashville Mandolin Camp wouldn't be nearly so jolly. They said nice things about us and helped a young mandolin player make it to camp. It doesn't get much better than that!
