Description

Red Wing Academy is hosted by Eric Brubaker of The Steel Wheels as a four-day intensive camp held July 5-8 & 10, 2020 at Eastern Mennonite University, leading up to a performance on stage with the band at Red Wing Roots Music Festival.

Red Wing Academy is open to non-beginner violin, viola, cello, bass, guitar, mandolin and banjo students ages 5 – 19. Students will receive individual and group instruction from highly trained music teachers and will also be coached by members of The Steel Wheels throughout the week. Daily curriculum will include group classes, mini lessons, improv and jam sessions, technique and tone development, stage performance, electives, recreation, panel discussions, showcases, and more. Each day will close with a camp wide rehearsal to practice for Red Wing performance.

Throughout the 4-day workshop, students will learn several tunes to perform collectively. On Friday, July 10, 2020 the Academy experience will culminate at Red Wing Roots Music Festival with a live, on-stage performance with The Steel Wheels.

New this year, we are excited to introduce Red Wing Academy Encore! The Encore Ensemble and curriculum are specially designed for our most advanced students. RWA Encore will perform an additional showcase with The Steel Wheels on one of the main stages at Red Wing Roots Music Festival. Interested students must submit a video audition performing any piece of their choosing from memory to academy@redwingroots.com. Students will be notified of acceptance prior to camp.

Detailed schedule and class descriptions will be announced this spring!
