This is a joint project of many workcamps organisations worldwide. We believe that especially in times as challenging as these, it is important to raise our voices for solidarity and international friendship. International workcamps were created 100 years ago to work towards mutual understanding, peace and solidarity beyond borders. Let’s keep this spirit and find new ways to get to know and support each other. This virtual workcamp is organized by different workcamp organisations worldwide as an effort to keep up international volunteering, even if most of us cannot travel right now.
As many of us are in self-isolation and have a lot of time on there hands, what better use of time would there be than picking up a new beautiful hobby like the
guitar? If you have an interest learning guitar and getting a foot into the door to the realm that is called music, I will be happy to share with you what knowledge I
have about it and would be more than happy to see you in the camp!
What you will learn in this camp:
- Basic understanding of the instrument (What are the Strings called, basic understanding why it is the way it is)
- Very Brief introduction to music theory, just enough so that it makes some sense to you.
- Learning the basic chord shapes and how to play a simple rhythm
- If there is time or we progress far enough we can learn a simple classic song like "Knocking on heaven’s door" or something similar (But the goal is that you can
learn them by yourself anyways!)
Learning structure: We will meet 2 - 3 times a week, which partly depends on your needs. In the
video sessions I will give you some input so you can learn in groups or alone at your own will and motivation. Alongside the obvious guitar teaching I will also advise you to some nifty apps, websites and tools you can use for managing the guitar and to ease the learning process. (These will range from tuning apps to chord sheet- websites)
Your own home. It might not be a brand new experience, but hey, you might be missing out on sleeping on hard field beds, sharing a room with the whole workcamp group or having to make a schedule for the showers. Is that really so bad...? Plus, in our virtual workcamp, you might have a chance to see how different homes all over the world look like!

- Sessions duration: 2- 3x per week for 45 to 60 min
- Where? To be determined

English, Internet, Microphone, Guitar (Maybe you can borrow one if you don’t have one at home) and the motivation to learn a new skill.

This workcamp will be taking place entirely online. It is accessible to everybody with a working internet connection. No borders, no visa, no need to travel, so you are saving CO2-emissions which is really nice for our beautiful planet! While it is important to keep physical distance at the moment, we can create social proximity in the digital world.
