The Nineteenth Annual Summer Acoustic Music Week (August 17-23) is right around the corner! The week is filled with intensive instruction, jamming, workshops, concerts, dances and musical collaboration, with instructors attuned to the needs of each student. No matter what your musical skill or experience, you will enjoy your week at SAMW. Class levels range from elementary to advanced, although not every class is offered at every level. The courses we offer range from the traditional to the contemporary taught by instructors who are experienced musicians and love to teach. Whether you play guitar, fiddle, mandolin or dulcimer or perhaps want to learn more about songwriting and vocal techniques check out the SAMW instructor roster. The instructors are all listed on the left side of this page along with class descriptions and daily schedules. One of the wonderful features of SAMW is the music that the instructors and students all bring to share. This is the core of this music camp. Much of this happens during the jam sessions, but there are also concerts open mikes and workshops that expose the wonderful wealth of music found at SAMW. It's an opportunity for you to put aside daily distractions and immerse yourself in folk music, work on your particular skills and make new friends. The site is beautiful. SAMW is situated on nearly 200 acres of woods and green spaces. With a mile of beach front on Lake Winnipesaukee, SAMW offers a beautiful view of the lake and the Ossipee Mountains.
