Adults, Kids 
There are lots of ways to learn
and enjoy music! 

We have many opportunities to expand your musical mastery at Wintergrass.
From music basics, to songwriting tips from pros, to intensives diving deep into a topic, we have music education for all ages. 

Adult Education

Intensive workshops are our most in-depth workshops at Wintergrass. Dive deep into a specific instrument like guitar, banjo or nyckelharpa and learn what makes the greats great. These courses are limited to 15 adult students each, require paid registration and fill up quickly.

People have asked us for years: Why can’t there be a “Camp” at Wintergrass where “beginner” grown-ups can go beyond the regular workshop format and have fun and games and wall-to-wall instruction? A safe environment for exploring music, building a circle of friends, and getting a little silly is what the Youth Academy has always been about, and now Wintergrass extends this to adults! Our new Wintergrass Never-Too-Late Day Camp takes place on Saturday, and requires a separate paid registration.



Our workshop offerings range from instrument basics, to vocal and harmony training, to groove and feel workshops, to audio production techniques. Festival workshops are included in the price of your festival ticket and are open to festival goers only.


Wintergrass jamz youth music education programs

Something old, something new and something definitely blue. In an effort to declutter and simplify, Wintergrass youth education programs have undergone name changes along with simplified descriptions. These programs are connected by progressive and cumulative curriculum and of course, loads of fun.  

All JAMZ programs are designed for kids to learn to play, sing, dance, perform, compose and jam at age appropriate levels. No formal music training is necessary. Folk and Bluegrass music is passed from friend to friend. Friends who play together stay together. Start you kid on music for a lifetime at JAMZ.
