What a Camper Needs to Know

Eskil works with Anna Zuver and Aaron GordonWe accept players and singers in middle and high school, with playing and singing skills on a late beginner/intermediate (quick learner) through advanced levels. Remember, this is not a camp for those new to their instrument.


  • Guitar players should know their basic open chords and bar chords and know a little bit about scales and the notes on their fret boards. A knowledge of key relationships is also helpful.
  • Bass players should be able to play simple bass patterns in a steady fashion, and know a little about chord relationships.
  • Drummers should be able to keep a steady beat for a minimum of three minutes, and know the basic rock and blues patterns.
  • Keyboard players should know the basic chords in most keys, and have some knowledge of the relationship between keys.
  • Horn players should be able to play all 12 major scales. They will need to have their own instruments, and in good working condition.
  • Singers should be able to match pitch. Nerves of steel are helpful.

All campers should bring an eagerness to learn, a willingness to be creative, and a determination to do his or her best.
