Y'all, Cabin Camp is comin' back to my home in Mt. Juliet! For all you camp veterans, it's a sweet homecoming! For those who never got the chance to come to camp at my house and experience the cabin studio where I record all my lessons, now's your last chance!

INSTRUMENTS: Banjo, Guitar, & Mandolin

INSTRUCTORS: Banjo Ben Clark-guitar, Katy Lou Clark-banjo, & Penny Lea Gimble-mandolin

DATE:Wednesday-Friday, October 4-6, 2023

LOCATION: Nashville, TN!

PRICE:$899 each including lunches and suppers, with supper guest passes available for purchase, $25 each!


Skill Level: 
Banjo, Guitar & Mandolin - Established beginner through intermediate. Must be able to play basic rhythm chords along with slow songs and have a desire to begin soloing/improvising. If you feel super comfortable jamming with pros, this camp may be too basic for you. If you can't play simple chords with slow songs, this camp may be too advanced for you.

Atmosphere: This camp is an intimidation-free zone! No one will be put on the spot or made to feel dumb! Mess ups are encouraged, because that means you're trying. Believe me, I mess up all the time.

Preparation: The best way to prepare is play with my PickAlong lessons found HERE! You don't have to be able to play solos, but it's good to familiarize yourself with the melody and try to learn the chord progression. There is no stress, y'all. Just do what you can to prepare, and I'll take you from there!

Here are lessons on my site that are great for preparing, but not necessary:
Banjo - Banjo Boot Camp, Banjo Hand Positions, Pickin' Your Banjo Picks, How to Read Banjo Tab, Basic Major Chords, Banjo Roll Studies, & Basic Banjo Backup.
Guitar - Pick & Hand Fundamentals, How to Read Guitar Tab, Common Major Chords, G Major Scale Study, Inside Cabin Camp: Intro to Bluegrass Rhythm Guitar, Waltz or 3/4 Guitar Rhythm, Essential Chord Theory, How to Build Solos
Mandolin - Introduction to the Mandolin, Pick Hand Foundations, How to Read Mandolin Tab, Learning Open Mandolin Chords: G, C, & D, Minor Chords, Basic Mandolin Rhythm, Alternate Picking Exercise, Jamming in G, Jamming in A (same concept)

The price is $899, which includes:

  • Small group sessions and personal attention!
  • 6 excellent meals!
  • Over $100 in gear & accessories!
  • Exclusive offers on General Store inventory!

  1. Can I bring my family or friends? You may purchase supper guests passes. The guests will be welcome to join us for supper around 6PM and after-supper activities. They will not be able to attend the camp during the day. 
  2. Should I fly or drive? That's up to you! I live in Mount Juliet, TN, about 15 minutes from the Nashville airport and 5 minutes from suggested hotel lodging. If flying, you will probably not need to rent a car as Uber and Lyft are common here. 
  3. What happens if it rains? I have facilities that will accommodate ;) 
  4. Can I bring more than one instrument? You can, but you'll need to commit to one instrument for the learning portion of the camp. When it comes to jamming, you can play whatever you want!
