MinierAcustica Summer Music Camp, Urbino (Italy) [updated]



MinierAcustica Summer Music Camp, Urbino (Italy)
Instrumental Instruction & Ensemble Coaching
The 9th MinierAcustica Music Camp at La Corte della Miniera will be held between August 24th  and August 30th in the beautiful rolling hills of the Marche region, near Urbino, Italy.
The lineup of instructors promises an excellent musical experience:
Russ Barenberg (USA) - guitar
Mike Compton (USA) - mandolin
Henrich Novak (SK) - dobro
Jean-Marie Redon (FR) - banjo
This year, in addition to the specific workshops for each instrument in the program, the teachers will lead students in a shared group practice. The morning will thus be dedicated, in equal shares, to the improvement of skills with your chosen instrument, learning tunes in the various classes (guitar, banjo, dobro or mandolin) and to the arrangement of these tunes in an ensemble under the direction of Mike Compton, Henrich Novak, Jean-Marie Redon and Russ Barenberg.
The camp itself is undertaken in a relaxed, friendly and family-like atmosphere with morning classes, afternoon activities and evening concerts and jams with lots of music, fun, great Italian food and wine.
