  • WE'RE GEARING UP FOR 2015!

    JULY 19 - JULY 26, 2015

    We're thrilled to welcome back ...
    MIKE DOWLING, ANDRA FAYE, SCOTT BALLANTINE, and MORE TBA!

    Online Registration Opens November 15 ... stay tuned for 2015 update!

    Designed for hobbyists to professional players, our program offers workshops in Acoustic Blues, Folk, Contemporary Acoustic, Folk/Pop. Swing and Bossa/Samba. Instruction is offered in guitar, bottleneck guitar, mandolin, fiddle, bass and ukulele -- as well as voice and harmony singing!

    Our schedule provides opportunities for in-depth workshops which meet daily Monday through Friday, PLUS a diverse menu of 1-hour "elective" workshops. Electives enable students to check out additional topics of interest and interact with more of our instructors. There's also a long mid-day break, providing free time to practice, an opportunity to take advantage of the Bar Harbor area -- from biking, hiking and jogging in Acadia National Park, to kayaking off our pier, to checking out what's going on in town.

    Evenings will be filled with jams, student concerts, faculty concerts -- and more! Wishing you all good music & good times! Alice Schiller Founder/Director
