This class is for the adult complete beginner who has never picked up the guitar or only knows a few chords and is having trouble making it sound like something anyone but your mother can love. We will learn:
Holding the guitar
Your first 10 chords
Time signatures and how to keep time
You will be in a group class with other music lovers at your age and playing level and will learn many skills, including how to play a variety of fiddle music and how to play with others as an ensemble in a supportive and fun environment. Hone your skills in the art of fiddling in private lessons as well!
Plus, this is the only class you get to sit in the back and fiddle around…
Every instrument plays an important role in a band. This program will introduce students to the staple 'garage band' instruments and hold space for the exploration of each role.
A healthy blend of sound exploration, creating a musical team and honing the foundations of playing music in a group is what this program is all about!
By the end of the program students should have a small set of pieces that they will be reasonably comfortable playing in a ‘jam’ setting.
Mondays, we have the Campfire Ukulele class
Tuesdays, we have the Campfire Guitar Bootcamp 101
Wednesdays, we have Garage Band Class
Thursdays are the Free Open Days
Fridays, we have Music Theater Through the Ages
Learn about songwriting, arranging and how to turn a “jam” into a song. Song forms, creating set lists and different performance techniques will be demonstrated to bring all the hard work together for a cohesive, entertaining and rehearsed show.
Students will have an interactive experience on how to take a bands’ music to the next level and what is involved with playing gigs and then ultimately heading into the recording studio and releasing material.
Exercising musical and social skills while being challenged creatively is what the Youth Garage Band classes are all about.
