Learning by doing!

With the overwhelming success of our new focus on Jamming in Groups, we will once again be divided into groups based on experience and skill level and lead by a few members of our teaching staff.

The morning classes will continue to include the traditional theoretical, as well as, hands on instruction.

In the afternoon, we will be dividing into smaller groups and specialty workshops to really get down to the nuts and bolts of playing in band formations.

Advanced players will have the opportunity to fine tune their already developed skill set by sitting in with a “Pro Style Jam Session”. So grab your hats and hold on tight…!

Our camp location is once again, the historic Bildungshaus Achatswies in the lovely Bavarian village of Fischbachau.

If ever there was a setting intended for learning, playing and sharing Bluegrass Music, this it is!

We invite everyone to come on down, have a seat on our big back porch, take a big deep breath of the fresh Alpine air and be prepared to be inspired by a landscape that can only be described as “Spectacular”.

We truly believe a family style atmosphere is one of the most important aspects for hosting a successful camp and Fischbachau does not disappoint!
We invite Bluegrass musicians of all playing levels to join us for a long, fun filled weekend of interacting with other musicians and learning traditional American Bluegrass styles taught by the best professionals in the industry.
We look forward to seeing you once again in Fischbachau!

All the best from Munich
