Join us for our first ever Murphy Method Women’s Banjo Camp, July 19-21, 2013, in Winchester, Virginia. Why an all-women banjo camp? Because we want to do a women’s camp. We want to reach out to more women who play and get them playing together. Very few women come to our other camps and we want to create a unique event with an inclusive atmosphere where everyone will feel comfortable.
We will take a maximum of 20 students. Murphy Henry and Casey Henry will be your instructors for this intimate camp. They will focus on making you a better, more well-rounded banjo player. There will be lots and lots of playing.
And while we have said this is a camp for all levels of banjo playing women—and we do mean all levels!!—you will get much more out of the camp if you at least know how to put on your picks, tune your banjo with an electronic tuner, play a few rolls (oh yeah, you need to know what a “roll” is!), and make a C chord. In short, getting our Beginning Banjo Vol. 1 and going through that first introductory lesson will REALLY HELP!
Our fondest hope is that we will have banjo-picking women attending from ages 8 to 80! A glorious cross-generation sharing of music and musical energy.
We make our camps ones that WE would want to attend! Accordingly, the accommodations will be a private (or shared) room at the Courtyard Marriott in Winchester. Our camp classes and activities will be held right at the hotel, and you will have access to the classrooms after hours for jamming.
If you have any questions at all or need more information please feel free to email Casey at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Can my significant other come along?
Of course! If your non-banjo-playing partner wants to come along they are welcome. $50 will cover their lodging, breakfasts, and lunches for the weekend. If they play, too, they are welcome to bring their instrument and they can join in on the jamming!
When should I arrive?
We’ll start class after lunch on Friday, so a Friday morning arrival is fine. If you come in on Thursday night and want to stay in the same place you’ll be staying for the camp, that can be arranged separately with the hotel.
When should I leave?
Classes will end after lunch on Sunday so you can plan for a mid-afternoon departure. If you want to stay over Sunday night, that can also be arranged separately with the hotel.
What level player do I need to be to attend this camp?
This will be a camp for all levels of players, however you will have a much easier time if you have a few tunes under your belt and know your vamp chords.
Will private lessons be available?
Both Murphy and Casey will be available for private lessons both before and after the camp. These should be arranged individually with them. (Murphy: email@example.com Casey: firstname.lastname@example.org)
