2019 Teachers

Each week has its own balanced variety of teachers, with an enormous range of styles and genres. Teachers come from all over—some live just down the road, and there are teachers from as far away as Australia. All of the teachers at PSGW share a few things in common: they are passionate about what they are teaching, they bring expertise in their topics as well as in their teaching skills, and they are eager to share in the camp experience with students.

Look over the instructor list to see who is teaching this year and what they are offering, then check out the teacher archives from past years too.

"The teachers are so available and approachable. Not only do you get their time in classes, but they are willing to take extra time to show you something or help you. The love of music and teaching in each of the instructors is palpable."

"I took a songwriting class from Cosy Sheridan that blew my mind open. I had written songs before attending but never with much purpose or success. During her class I committed to making writing something that I practiced. I wrote 50 songs in the year following camp."
