Urbino in Italy

the month of August

two courses

two colors…


MINIERACUSTICA is an acoustic music camp which takes place on the site of an abandoned mine near the town of Urbino, in central Italy.

The focus is centered around acoustic and improvised music within the folk, bluegrass, old-time and jazz traditions. Our goal was to create a place which would combine the study and celebration of music and music making, with the joy and pleasure of a holiday. A place where everyone is both professor and student and can bring a bit of themselves, their background and their musical journey to share with everyone else. 

The courses are held by first class musicians. In addition to working on technical improvements of your instrumental skills we will concentrate, in wider terms, on the development of musicality.

MinierAcustica is a rare opportunity to work in a warm and supportive environment and share your music and passion in the wonderful setting. There are daily classes, seminars, one-to-one tuition, concerts and, of course plenty of jamming occasions.

You can also try your hand at arts and crafts courses, visit to local town of Urbino or just chill in the pool. The food is all home made, locally sourced italian food of the highest quality (alternative diets available).



Minieracustica is divided into two one-week camps (Yellow week and Blue week) each with it’s own program.

  • Yellow Week mainly focuses on gypsy style, ensemble music for multiple instruments, and singing.

  • Blue Week is dedicated to traditional American music such as bluegrass, old-time and Appalachian music.
