The 2022 RockyGrass Academy will be held July 25-28. Registration is currently closed. Look back in late November for updates.
Note: Instrument building classes were cancelled in 2021, but are expected to return in 2022.
For a week before the RockyGrass Festival begins, immerse yourself as an active participant in the world of bluegrass.
From small classes with world-class professional musicians to sessions on group jamming, vocal coaching, songwriting, one-on-one instruction, and a variety of electives (including practice techniques, writing instrumentals, accompaniment, improvisation, and music history) to band scrambles, BBQs, and plenty of jamming for novice through advanced ability levels, many Academy students return year after year, creating long-term relationships with fellow musicians from all over the world.
There are no notebooks. No laptops. The learning process here distills down to playing music – sometimes while standing shin-deep in the river – with others who share a passion for this American roots music.
