Classes at Kentucky Music Week are divided into five time periods called sessions. A registrant may select one class for each session. That class will progress over the five days of camp. As many as five classes, one per session, may be selected. Please review the wide variety of offerings and skill levels for each class before making your selections.
It is recommended that students select classes according to their individual skill levels and interests. Instructors prepare their material according to these levels. Please review the "Skill Levels" table to the below. These designations are used in the class offerings below. Skill levels are designated for each class as shown below.
|B||Beginning players would be best to stay with this level. This is for those with no playing experience, or for those who can play just a little, but really need basic help.|
|B/I||Beginning to Intermediate level players should choose this One. If you can play melody comfortable and some simple chords and are ready for more technique and songs, jamming, and more, this level is for you.|
|B/I-I||This level is for those almost intermediate players starting to explore more difficult techniques and styles, but still working on smoothing out playing.|
|I||Intermediate level takes playing to the next step with more advanced techniques and tunes. You should be able to play smoothly and know chords, and your fret board.|
|I/A||High Intermediate Into Advanced. This class is for the more experienced player who is comfortable playing with a variety of rhythms and tempos as well as able to use dynamics to bring feeling into their music.|
|A||Advanced. This level is for the truly advanced play wanting to learn more from the Masters! Advanced skills and techniques will be taught in these challenging classes.|
If you find you are attending a class that is the wrong level, or doesn't work for you, you should come to the KMW office to inquire about a change. Any class changes MUST be cleared with KMW staff ahead of time, and they will be happy to help you. No class changes will be allowed after Tuesday morning at 8:30 AM. No one will be allowed to join a class after Tuesday. Registrants are never allowed to “visit” a class, or go from class to class throughout the week.
A secure room will be provided for instrument storage that will be accessible throughout the week, from 8:15 AM until 5:15 PM.
