July 16, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
One event on July 17, 2019 at 10:00 am
This 4-Part class, designed for both the “new” player and those who want to “continue growing” on the instrument, is open to both readers and by ear players; participants will benefit by attending all 4 sessions, making the experience cumulative and providing more knowledge and playing experience for the 3-Day Workshop. Players that are not comfortable with tuning their instrument should plan to arrive at 9:00 am on the first morning (Tuesday) for help with tuning. Players that took this class in 2018 will benefit by returning to the class for continued experience in learning/familiarization of the instrument layout, building repertoire, learning/playing chord structure and more. 2019 Class will present new Repertoire.
Specific topics covered in this class: Layout/Tuning, Instrument Care, Playing Technique, Learning/Building Repertoire (different styles), Playing Chords/Rhythms and Hands-on Playing Time.
Helpful Things to Bring to Class: Instrument/Hammers, Tuning Wrench, Electronic Tuner, Music Stand (if you have one) and the Love of Music!! Fee includes all handouts.
