Grammy-award winners Eugene Friesen and Howard Levy, and Kansas recording artists Richard Crowson and Wayne Gottstine of Split Lip Rayfield will be featured instructors.

There are several options available for children seven and younger. Participants can bring their own instruments or borrow instruments provided by Flint Hills Music.
