GillaCamp Oregon Guitar and Ukulele Retreat in August 2018 will be a unique Music Experience that is fun, inspirational, and invigorating. Hosted by Uptown Music of Keizer, Oregon and veteran master teacher, composer, and fingerstyle guitar wizard Richard Gilewitz, the GillaCamp Guitar and Ukuklele Retreat is the player’s answer to turning over common frustrations while learning or perfecting fingerstyle techniques, overcoming fears and insecurities, rekindling the passion for learning new tunes, and rediscovering the joy of guitar, plus the opportunity for both guitar and ukulele players to hone their skills.
GillaCamp Guitar and Ukulele Retreats are designed for the beginner to advance player, and for singers who play guitar or ukulele for accompaniment. Students must be at the level of intermediate beginner or higher, be able to read tablature, and have a basic understanding of simple chord shapes. Individual and group attention is the main focus of GillaCamp with additional private instruction offered during off hours.
Fifty-minute sessions include fingerstyle patterns, rhythm and food, 12-bar blues, jamming, learning a tune, music theory, how to love your metronome, and more. Both ukulele and guitar players will discover the fun of playing together, while each will be able to expand their playing skills, correct bad habits, and soar to the next level of proficiency. GillaCamp is limited to 15 students. More information about reservations, topics, lodging, etc. can be found at http://www.richardgilewitz.com/workshops/gillacamp-weekend-or.html
