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 three years of private lessons on their instrument. Workshops culminate in a jam-style performance at BKCM and at NYC bluegrass music festivals.
