The Instructors for the July 30 – Aug 3 , 2013 Lumberjack Music Camp

TRACK 1: Banjo

Ian Porteous has been playing Bluegrass and Old time Music for almost 20 years. He’s been to music camps almost every summer and believes the best way to learn is to play with others and to immerse yourself.  He has developed a Foundation Music Coaching System that works on most stringed instruments in the Bluegrass and Old time style.  If you’re ready for a blast of enthusiasm and effective teaching concepts and strategies, you’re ready for the Lumberjack Music Camp.  This year the theme of the camp is:

-Kick offs, endings, timing and tone.


TRACK 2: Old-Time Fiddle



Track 3: Guitar
