Registration Update - We have just finished this year's camp. What a blast!
Get ready for 2017 - Registration will open May 1, 2017!
Teacher info and dates will be added in the next few months.
Friday through Sunday, September 9-11, 2016

Come join us in beautiful Ridgetop, TN for a long weekend retreat of great fiddling and lots of fun. Every day we will work on fiddle tunes, take jam classes, go to downtown Nashville to hear incredible music, and a lot more. Kind and patient instructors will help you improve your technique, your practice skills, and your overall fiddling stamina.
This is a very special camp though, completely different from the rest, for a few reasons. First, it is limited to 15 participants. Each FiddleStar Camp sells out quickly so getting your registration in early is key! But we are committed to providing a small, intimate experience where you get to know each camper and each teacher and are guaranteed to make some lifelong friends and mentors. Second, this camp is strictly for more beginning players. Everything will be geared to the unique needs of beginning players. Jams will be slower, tunes will be taught in a more repetitive fashion, technique and early good habits will be emphasized. This camp is a place where beginning adult fiddlers can come and feel comfortable getting started being the fiddle player they always dreamed of being!
