"I can't imagine a more ideal immersion into the old-time tradition than one of Janie's Jumpstart weekends. The collection of talented instructors, the small class size, the jamming opportunities, the bucolic setting, the great food -- see for yourselves. You'll learn a lot and have a ton of fun."  Paul O'Connor-clawhammer banjo (Oxford, PA Jumpstart)

Our goal with Janie's Jumpstart Camp is to not only teach you great tunes, but how to play them better and have more fun!  By focusing on both technique and musicality, we will help you get your playing to the next level.
Janie's Jumpstart offers small class settings of about maximum 8 students per instructor so there is a lot of attention to your individual needs. We also ensure that everyone in your class is at the same level by taking the time to listen to every student who registers via skype/facetime or video.  Students are able to progress together and get more results from the class time and really Jumpstart their playing.
 
Feel free to contact JANIE directly (janerothfield@gmail.com) if you are not sure if the class levels are right for you. She will help answer that question for you! 
 
Throughout the weekend, students will have the option to participate in many hours of old time music jams during camp with staff and other participants. 
Questions you may have!
​Is this Janie's Jumpstart Weekend Camp for me?
This camp is for intermediate/advanced fiddlers, Novice and Int/Advanced clawhammer banjo players, and Int guitarists.   If you are looking for great teachers, small classes in a supportive learning atmosphere, with attention to musicality, rhythm and tone, tons of jamming with staff and how to play the music you love BETTER, then this camp is for you!
How will I know what class to be in?
We will make sure that this camp is right for you by using information you provide in the registration form and by talking and listening personally with each student one on one prior to camp. Janie will contact you for a one on one assessment, as well as listening either on the phone, or via video and/or facetime/skype to make sure she knows your playing ability and learning style to make sure you are in the right level class.
Janie's Jumpstart prides itself on making sure the the people in each class are VERY CLOSE in ability so the class can learn at the same pace and skill.

Georgia asked me if I could play the fiddle and click my heels in the air-I said "Sure" and I started walking down from the cabin playing St. Anne's Reel.  I heard Georgia say "2" and up I went! She got the shot as is-no photoshop here!
