Camp Tunefox

May 15-19th in Montreat, North Carolina

Introducing our 2019 Theme: Cultivating Individual Creativity

The Tunefox Camp Experience

At Tunefox we believe you play, learn, and practice because of those who inspire you. They are creators who have cultivated their individual voices as musicians and we want to provide an experience, online and in person, that empowers you to do the same.

Our goal at camp is to have you learning hands on, to move you out of your comfort zone and help you hone your voice as a musician. You'll play for each other, practice with each other and use the unique environment of being around a community of musicians to spark your next level of playing.
