July 30 - August 1, 2015

At this first-ever summer camp folk school workshop, students entering grades 9 through 12 will learn guitar instruction from Jimmy Gauld and Laine Poole. These highly skilled and talented instructors will teach the basics as well as how to jam with other musicians. Students will learn a few jams, alternate tunings, practical tips that most guitar players use, how to perform solo or with others, ways for communicating on stage, and how to become better guitar players.

Class Level: Intermediate to Advanced

Jimmy Gauld has been playing the acoustic guitar for over 40 years and is self-taught. He has performed professionally as a solo artist, with multiple bands, and as a studio musician. He is a published singer songwriter and brings a wealth of knowledge to those who want to create their own acoustic guitar style.

Laine Poole has been playing guitar for over 40 years and is comfortable with a wide variety of musical styles. As a multi-instrumentalist, he has performed with numerous bands over the years and has recorded several tracks for different artists as a studio musician. He later worked as a middle school teacher and corporate trainer, and now brings those two skillsets together as a music instructor and band coach. There is nothing Laine enjoys more than sharing his wealth of knowledge with the next generation of guitarists
