Get ready for festival and jamming season and Jumpstart your fiddle and banjo playing with Janie's Jumpstart One Day Camp! This camp is for the intermediate clawhammer banjo player and intermediate fiddlers and will give you the unique opportunity to learn from and spend quality time with two great Old Time musicians and experienced teachers!


Intermediate Clawhammer Banjo with Hilarie Burhans:  For players who want to improve their bum ditty rhythm and expand into drop thumb and how to play melody, backing up a fiddler, how to play by ear and play in a jam.


Intermediate Old Time Fiddle with Janie Rothfield For fiddlers who want to add to their repertoire of old time tunes as well as improve rhythm, tone and musicality.


​Is this Janie's Jumpstart Weekend Camp for me?

This camp is designed for intermediate level clawhammer banjo players, and  fiddlers. Prior knowledge of old time music is not required. The focus of Janie's Jumpstart is not just about learning tunes, but to also learn and use techniques and musical strategies to get you to the next level in your playing-regardless of ability or level! And of course, to have a lot of FUN!


This is not a "learn as many tunes as possible" camp, although you will learn many tunes-it is more about playing the tunes better!


How will I know if my playing ability if the right level for this camp?

We will make sure that you are in the right class by using information you provide in the registration form and by talking, listening and watching (via video or skype) with each student prior to camp. We want to make sure you are in the right class for your ability and to be successful in your goals for the weekend!

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!
