John Petrucci:
“The goal at this camp is when you step in the door, you’re on the path to gaining more knowledge. You’re going to leave having learned how to get the guitar sound you’re after, you’ll learn about recording and you’ll learn a lot more since what I’m offering is a broad range of teachers, who all play at a high level.

“Each of the instructors knows how to teach guitar, myself included. As a Berklee, alumni I know about music theory and how to convey insight about playing the guitar. Dream Theater drummer Mike Mangini, who used to be a faculty member at the Berklee College of Music, will discuss percussion. Twice every day, we gather in one big room for my masterclass, which is one of my favorite parts of the camp, since we focus on some of the more fascinating aspects of playing the guitar.”
