Schedule 2020

Stick Camp Canada has 2 main objectives: performance and sharing, and our schedule each day is driven by these two objectives.

A Musical Conversation – Share Your Ideas

Time is set aside each day for our Musical Conversation – an ongoing discussion on this year’s topics. Everyone attending is encouraged to share their musical ideas, experiences, and techniques. And we don’t have to be in a classroom, either!

Musical Conversation Topics for Stick Camp Canada 2020:

 – Getting Started with the Stick

 – Developing Technique

 – Bass Rudiments

 – Live Performance

 – Using Effects

 – Amps and Speakers

Need a little time to yourself?

Stick Camp Canada is about spending time with other Stick players! Open hours are scheduled for reflecting, relaxing and rehearsing.  But Gabriola Island is also a lovely place to find solitude. The Surf Lodge grounds are lovely, and Gabriola Island has some beautiful beaches and parks.
