A Camp for Acoustic Musicians and Vocalists
Do you play an acoustic instrument or want to learn one? Do you sing? Do you want to get better at your music in a fun environment?
California Coast Music Camp (CCMC) offers two separate weeks each July with beginning, intermediate, and advanced classes for adult musicians, including singers.
Musically inclined teenagers 14 and older are welcome when accompanied by a parent or adult sponsor.
There are classes, workshops, jams, concerts, dances, and more. Each week is designed to help you stretch musically—and have a blast!
Attend small-group classes in guitar, bass, banjo, mandolin, fiddle, ukulele, percussion, vocals, stagecraft, and songwriting—with renowned instructors who truly know how to teach.
Class styles have included folk, blues, bluegrass, country, Brazilian, Celtic, Hawaiian, old-time, rock, swing and jazz.
