The Woodsheds are 3-day seasonal intensives (Autumn, Spring and Summer) for strings, harp, guitar, mandolin, voice, and piano. Each day students participate in classes such as chamber orchestra, genre-specific ensembles (pop/rock band, bluegrass group, jazz trio, etc...), music theory, songwriting, extensive performance coaching, all culminating in a live performance. You'll hone classical technique, fiddle chops, melody and lyric writing, and stagecraft. The program is open to all skill levels. It's ideal for students looking to jump to a new level of technical fluency, musicality, and performance experience. The Woodsheds are limited to 50 students. Classes include:
