This is the second year I have attended the California Bluegrass Association Father's Day Festival Music Camp. They do a great job of getting great instructors, many of whom are members of the bands appearing at the bluegrass festival that follows the camp. The camping facilities are rough but there are showers and many portable toilets. There are also hookups for RV's. Food is provided for an additional charge and, while not gourmet cooking, is served promptly and is of decent quality.
My old time banjo instructor was first rate. He provided books to the class and led us through learning the tunes using tab and also committing them to memory. I heard from most other students I spoke with that they also enjoyed their instructors and found the time spent worthwhile.
