John Petrucci to host guitar camp in 2017

The camp will be August 7-11, 2017 in NY

Dream Theater’s John Petrucci is getting on board the musician camp craze with one of his own which he calls John Petrucci’s Guitar Universe.  The 4 day camp will happen next August 7-11th, 2017 in Glen Cove, NY.  Guests include Tosin Abasi, Rusty Cooley, Andy James, Tony MacAlpine, Mike Mangini, and Andy McKee!  Registration begins Nov. 23rd.

The event is described as “an event for players and music-lovers of all ages, levels, interests, and taste! Whether you are a master player, a beginner, or just an enthusiastic fan, our four day programs offer activities and workshops for you. Our environments are non-competitive and are strictly about immersing oneself in the joys of music and our lovely surroundings!”

John Petrucci says this about the camp ““I have one important goal going into this: to make John Petrucci’s Guitar Universe a blast for everyone! It’s a celebration of the guitar, the art of shred and summer on beautiful Long Island. The camp will include informative workshops, student and faculty jams, a summit with some of the guitar industry’s leading voices and live evening performances including a concert featuring my solo band. It’s not just about taking lessons and attending seminars though; it’s a much broader vision – We’re going to hang out together, BBQ, enjoy some Long Island wines, maybe even talk bearding, bodybuilding and everything else the area has to offer!”
