This is unlike any vocal camp you've ever encountered...
In the hills just above Nashville, TN there is a house set back in the woods where people go to learn to play all the bluegrass and old-time instruments and for years, the sounds of fiddles, banjos, guitars, and mandolins have rung throughout the hills. Now, due to popular demand, we're offering a camp completely focused on SINGING! Only 15 campers total 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 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 can stay on-site or travel from your home (or a local hotel) each day to learn from the very best.
Nashville Vocal Camp will focus on three main aspects of the singing of traditional music - harmony, style, and technique - and the instructors are all masters in those areas. You will learn how to find your own personal style, how to jump into a harmony singing situation and blend right in, and how to sing with solid technique that will help you enjoy singing successfully for a lifetime. And on the last day of camp, each camper will jump into the Nashville Vocal Camp studio and record a song with a small group of their fellow campers, engineered by a real-deal Nashville recording engineer. This is a musical memory that you will have forever and something no other camp offers. It is a truly special experience.
