Fretboard Harmony

Fretboard Harmony

Students enrolled in Fretboard Harmony Guitar Class will be given training in the idiomatic way the guitar works in all genres – from classical to country. The primary goal of the course is to become familiar with the rudimentary harmonic and melodic patterns used by the musicians we love and to unlock the mystery surrounding the recurrence of these patterns on the fretboard. We begin with fundamental musicianship training and expand that to the guitar. We explore artistic ways to approach improvisation. There is consistency between the musical examples for this class and Campfire Bootcamp 101 so students have an opportunity to put the theory into practice.

Garage Band Revival

Garage Band Revival

This isn't a class as much as it is a great place to get together in small groups to play  and share music. It will complement the Campfire Guitar Bootcamp 101 well in that there will only be 1 meeting/month and rather than learning a pile of songs and riding the wave in a big group weekly. There will only be a handful of songs, small groups and proper arrangements. Experiment with songwriting and learn the ins and outs of making arrangements.

Youth Garage Band

Youth Garage Band

Every instrument has a unique role in a band. Playing together and creating a unique “band” sound is part of a process. Students will learn how to work together to create, write, rehearse and perform their own original material. 

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.
