Hone your technique before the Summer Music Festival begins!


The Woodshed

The Woodsheds are seasonal 3 day intensives for strings, harp, guitar, mandolin, voice, and piano. Each day students will participate in classes such as chamber orchestra, genre-specific ensemble (pop/rock band, bluegrass group, jazz trio, etc...), theory, songwriting, extensive performance coaching, all culminating in a live performance. You'll hone classical technique, fiddle chops, melody and lyric writing, and stagecraft. The program is open to all skill levels. It's ideal for students looking to jump to a new level of technical fluency, musicality and performance experience. The Woodshed is limited to 50 students. Classes include:

  • 2 private lessons.
  • Daily technique coaching.
  • In-depth instruction in Galamian technique for string students: bow technique, vibrato, finger articulation, shifting as well as advanced instruction on stagecraft and performance optimization.
  • Performance coaching: teaches stage presence, conquering nerves, and optimizing musicality.
  • Songwriting and the art of being creative
  • Master-level teaching from the Annie Moses Band and pedagogues from top-tier music conservatories.
