Hello and Welcome to Musicarium!
“For me, there’s a certain spirit that defines the program. What I learned last year during our first run was that we all share a mindset when it comes to this style of music. From the instructors to the campers, we’re all drawn to the free exploration of the acoustic guitar.
“One of my favorite authors and biggest inspirations is Carl Sagan. In the foreword for his book Pale Blue Dot: A Vision of the Human Future in Space, he discusses the “Explorer Spirit” inside all of us. That isn’t simply restricted to traveling the world or even outer space; it also extends to the guitar.
“Solo steel-string acoustic guitar is all about exploration. Whether it’s by utilizing alternate tunings, combining fingerpicking and a bass line on the low string, or using the body for percussion, this style of playing goes hand-in-hand with experimentation.
