A virtual bandura workshop

What is 'Bandura Hangouts'?

Bandura Camps for 2020 have been forced to close due to the Covid19 outbreak and its fallout. 'Bandura Hangouts' is an online program that helps young bandurists stay engaged with the music and with each other. Although we cannot learn together in person, participants of the Bandura Hangouts will be able to join in on—

  • Live workshops with instructors experienced in teaching bandura and voice, with a high instructor–student ratio

  • Video tutorials on topics like bandura maintenance, tuning and regulating

  • Bandura learning materials and sheet music

  • Lectures and demonstrations on bandura music topics

What You'll Need

Before Orientation on July 13, you'll want to make sure you've registered and you have the following things ready to go:

  • Your bandura

  • Stable internet connection if you join us for video workshops

  • A printer/tablet for accessing learning materials

  • A binder/online folder to keep your materials

  • A tuner and key

  • A readiness to learn!

  • Pro tip: sign up for our emails to stay on top of reminders and updates on Bandura Hangouts!


After you submit your registration, you'll be able to join workshop events through the 'Schedule' page. You can attend whatever lessons, listening sessions, or discussion groups you like! It's probably best if you stick with the same Group Lesson for the whole workshop. These take place on Mondays and Thursdays. Exercises, or Vpravy, are a great way to get better at bandura—you can play Vpravy with us every day of the week at 1pm.

The lessons have levels corresponding to bandura-playing ability. If Level 3 is too advanced for you, feel free to switch to L2. We want you to do what's best for you!

We have an orientation event for all participants at 11:00 a.m. on Monday, July 13, and a final Ceremony at 3:00 p.m. on Friday, August 7. All participants and their families are welcome!

Bandura Hangouts are a four-week virtual bandura workshop.
