Note:  The schedule has changed. Each workshop is now offered once,  and each day ends a bit earlier to accommodate day students who need to return to Tucson each evening.

Registration starts at 3:00 pm on Thursday, February 9, 2017. Camp will end at 3:00pm on Sunday, February 12.

The camp includes

  • workshops
  • song circles
  • one-on-one critiques
  • “home rooms:” in which students have time to  work on songs with an instructor available for questions
