This is not a camp for beginners.
Roots & Boots offers different levels of instruction for various instruments and for singing tracts. Do not sign up for a class if you have never played the instrument or ever done any singing!
To be considered a PINECONE (or novice) you must at least be able to strum, pick or bow, as well as change basic chords in time and play simple melodies.
Additionally, if you are taking singing tracks, although it is not completely necessary that you play an instrument, most of the classes will also demonstrate how to accompany yourself with your instrument while singing, therefore you may get more out of the singing classes if you also have your instrument
Intermediate/advanced level participants should be able to play a basic lead and rhythm parts and be comfortable jamming. Advanced level participants are expected to play well with others, be competent at faster rhythms and complex lead parts, and cover material quickly.
