Slow/Beginner Jam Periods: These are times when students can get together for controlled jam sessions with a jam leader. The Slow Morning Jam will take place in the Alumni Gym each morning Tuesday through Friday. The Slow Beginner's Jam will take place after the concert each evening in Issac's in Bartlett Hall. Nothing should exceed 100 Beats Per Minute or 45 Miles Per Hour. Slow/Beginner Jams in the AM and after the evening concert.
Morning and Afternoon Classes: These classes are two hours each with a few minutes break in the middle. You rotate with your assigned group through the week eventually attending each instructor's class. This input from every instructor and every possible angle and direction helps to make you a more rounded player and tends to avoid the clone syndrome that many students suffer.
Lunch/Rest/ Jam: Lunch is Lunch: Good Food! Near the end of the Kamp you will be looking for rest periods. It is our intent at SK's Acoustic Kamp that you feel "whooped" by the end of the week. These are great chances to catch up on sleep, go to town and visit the Smokies or jam with new or old acquaintances.
Break Out Sessions and Up-Close Classes: Kamp Staff will conduct special afternoon topic discussions. Also each instructor will conduct Master Classes. Eight Students to the class for One to One attentions. Must sign up at the Kamp Store.
Dinner: Dinner is Dinner - no one has ever complained about losing weight while at the Acoustic Kamps.
Each Night: Open Mic Time is a time that the students can try new material and play the big stage. Slots will be roughly Five minutes each and is available through a sign up sheet at the "Kamp General Store".
Open Mic Time: 7:00 - 7:30 PM and Concert Start Time 7:30 PM
