This is not a camp for rank beginners.
Roots & Boots offers different levels of instruction for various instruments and for singing tracts. Do not sign up for Roots & Boots if you have never played an instrument or have never done any singing! This will not be a good value for you.
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. Please contact us for more information regarding this. We can give you some suggestions for preparing for camp or understanding your level.
Additionally, if you are taking singing courses, although it is not completely necessary that you play an instrument, most of the classes will demonstrate how to accompany yourself with your instrument while singing. You may get more out of the singing classes if you also have your instrument with you.
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.
