I want to stress that the workshops will be for all skill levels, this Banjo Camp will not be for just advanced students! In fact many students will be in the beginning and intermediate skill level categories. Any advanced students that attend will also be given special attention with their own class taught to them with their present skill level in mind. The classes will be split into groups where students are close to the same level of proficiency with the instructors rotating to the different groups. This approach will ensure that each student will have an opportunity to work with each instructor with their present skill level in mind. It's important to note that the students themselves will choose the skill level group they want to be in. No students will be forced to audition or be judged by the faculty to belong in a certain skill level group. Students have a good idea where they will be most comfortable and you will not be asked to be in a group you are not happy with. The workshops are about you, the student. It is very important to me as the director that you find great benefit in the instruction and leadership of the faculty as well as the class curriculum. It is also important to me that you feel comfortable to learn, as well as not feeling judged or have any of that type of additional pressure put on you.
