Chapman Stick Workshop

Why Attend Chapman Stick Workshop

Join this 4-day Chapman Stick Workshop and gain valuable skills, hone techniques and enjoy the camaraderie of fellow players! The 2021 Chapman Stick Workshop faculty line-up includes master performers and teachers of the Stick, Larry Tuttle and Greg Howard.

This year’s Chapman Stick Workshop will be the seventh biennial event at Interlochen beginning back in 2009. The workshop will include instruction and inspiration for players of the Stick, the two-handed tapping electric instrument created by Emmett Chapman and popularized in the 1970s and 1980s by Tony Levin, who performed alongside artists including Peter Gabriel and King Crimson. Master performers and teachers of the Stick, Larry Tuttle and Greg Howard will lead technique classes and will perform in concert on the first night. Hands-on sessions throughout the workshop will inspire and support beginners and intermediate to advanced players, while a closing session on the final day will offer all participants a chance to play together. Gain valuable skills and enjoy the camaraderie of fellow Stick players from around the country. See the schedule for details regarding each instructional session offered during the workshop. Participants must provide their own instrument. See the Supplies tab below for details.
