Vocalists and string, guitar and mandolin players are invited to experience the truly American music of bluegrass. Taught by expert bluegrass musicians, in a fun jam-style approach, students experience the joys of leading, improvising and accompanying traditional folk songs and old time music. Students who join this class should be familiar with G, C and D major scales and have a minimum of two years of private lessons on their instrument. Faculty and students collaborate with each other on digital online recording platforms, composing and arranging music. Students receive play along tracks and materials to use for practice each day after class. A computer and a wifi connection are required for this class.


BKCM offers a wide range of ensembles for students of all ages, levels and experience. Students are motivated to practice repertoire outside of class and encouraged by their peers to take on new challenges. Taught by experts in the field, our ensembles include performance opportunities and a chance to connect with a community of other instrumentalists who are interested in developing their artistry.
