Morning meeting at Targhee Music Camp
With music as the common language, this camp focuses on individual instrumental skills, group playing, singing and jamming. Each day features morning and afternoon classes with your chosen instrument, elective workshops, jam sessions (both structured and unstructured) and evening performances – all adding up to a jam-packed and inspiring experience.
Classes are generally geared toward intermediate players, and some degree of proficiency is expected. (Please contact Thomas Sneed if you have questions about your ability level). Students of all ages are welcome, however, students 17 and under must be accompanied by an adult.

Grand Targhee Music Camp is four days of learning, jamming, and fun preceding the Grand Targhee Bluegrass Festival. Located at the resort, the setting is ideal for getting away from the real world and spending time in the mountains picking and singing.
Students also have the opportunity to enjoy the wide range of outdoor activities that Grand Targhee Resort has to offer: hiking, biking, swimming, chair lift rides and more. The resort is situated at 8,000 feet in the heart of the Tetons – a truly inspiring setting with spectacular views.
