BRISTOL, Va. — At the Birthplace of Country Music Museum's Pick Along! Summer Camp your child learns about Bristol's important role in the history of country music history and its lasting influence, and they receive instruction in how to play an instrument.

Children get instruction on the same style of instruments that were used in the 1927 Bristol Sessions recordings and learn fundamental skills in various music styles. Campers get to explore the Birthplace of Country Music Museum, learn about the music of Bristol and our region, receive instruction in singing and dancing, and be introduced to other concepts and disciplines that make up the rich tapestry of country music.

No previous musical experience is required for Pick Along! Summer Camps, only interest in music and a desire to learn and have fun. This camp is designed for beginners and anyone interested in our musical heritage.

Class size is limited.

Intermediate level camps (for return campers and those that already have basic knowledge & skill with music) are held June 19-23 and July 10-14.

Beginner camps, for first-time campers or those who may like to go through the basics again, are held June 26-30 and July 17-21.

The cost ranges between $75 and $175 and museum membership may be required. To register and for more information, visit
