Featuring a lineup of internationally and nationally renowned award-winning instructors, the Wheatland Summer Wheat Music Camp is held on the grounds of the Wheatland Music Organization in mid-Michigan. With a focus on traditional music, participants develop their skills in one-on-one sessions and in small group lessons. Held June 17-22, 2024, musicians, from beginners to seasoned professionals, can join for a day, a few days, or a full week.

Enjoy staying on the beautiful 160-acre festival grounds where the Wheatland Music Festival takes place in Remus, Michigan where you will find rolling hills, meadows, and wooded areas.

This camp is designed for adult players of all levels. Young folks able to sustain an adult level of participation are welcome (parent or guardian required for those under 18). There is a discounted option for non-musical spouses, partners, and parents to join the fun.

Dedicated to providing an immersive musical and educational experience, this camp is for those wanting to enhance their current skills or build a solid foundation in a new area.

Students experience personalized conversations, assignments, and feedback while learning directly from innovative world-class music instructors.

Students will be inspired by daily performances, receive coaching, and see the inner workings of their collaborative creative process.
