Upcoming camps include:
Sept. 6-11: Bass/Nature Camp: This 6-day experience is an opportunity for bass
guitar players to come together to learn and play with qualified instructors.
Sept.17-18: Jam Camp Weekend: This 2-day experience is a one-of-a-kind gathering
open to players of all instruments with the opportunity not only to “jam” with other
students, but also with Mr. Wooten and various guest artists.
Sept. 29-Oct. 2: Spirit of Music Camp: This 4-day camp is spent investigating the
side of music that is sometimes felt, but rarely talked about, and claimed, by some, to be
impossible to teach. Students learn and explore the hidden side of music. Dan Levitin,
author of This Is Your Brain on Music, will be a special guest instructor at this
very unique camp.
Mr. Wooten teaches each day and all day at all the various camps along with special guest
instructors. Camps are open to players 15 and older unless otherwise noted on the
website. Prices for the camps vary and do include lodging. Most do include meals but
check the website for details.
