The tenth annual Smoky Mountain Banjo Academy will be May 6th - 8th 2016. The camp will be held at the new Hatfield Music Barn adjacent to the Hatfield Music shop. This facility is centrally located near all the area tourist attractions, so family and friends may amuse themselves while the student immerses him/her-selves in banjo. Family members can ride the trolly to Dollywood, Splash Country, shopping malls, over thirty theatres, and dozens of other fun attractions. Students will be lodged at the Ramada Inn South and eat the evening meal in local restaurants. The barn is the site for classes, concerts and jamming by the campfire. A full tuition plan is offered that includes hotel and breakfast/lunch, or students may purchase "classes and concerts only" admission and fend for themselves for lodging and meals. Mini-concerts  run all weekend featuring the faculty, and all "three-day" students are guaranteed a private lesson with the pro of thier choice pending availability (first come first serve). Scholarships will be awarded for promising musicians who would not otherwise be able to attend. Work scholarship are also available: trade manual labor for tuituion. There is a lot of work yet to be done prepring the barn and site. However, this work needs to be done NOW... not a day or two before the camp. Also one "clerical/promotion" scholarship is available...mostly promoting the camp on the internet, contacting prospective students, banjo teachers, etc. , posting to list serves, bluegrass associations, and community bulletin boards.
