    Second Annual Camp Tunefox Announced, Montreat, N.C. May 13-17

    Montreat, N.C. — The creators of Tunefox, an app-based learning tool designed for stringed musicians to cultivate their individual creativity, have announced the second annual Camp Tunefox, to be held May 13-17.

    The goal of the camp is to provide instruction hands on, to move you out of your comfort zone and help hone your voice as a musician. You'll play, practice and use the unique environment of being around a community of musicians to spark your next level of playing.

      Bennett Sullivan of TuneFox has changed the format of Camp TuneFox which was to happen in mid-May to a virtual, online experience. No surprise there I'm sure for those watching. The dates are in the process of being scaled back a bit as well from May 13-17 to May 15-17. As they get their web site updates we'll be letting everyone know of any other changes that might apply.
