A Total Music Experience Guitar
The guitar workshop will focus on differing genres that the guitar has been able to accommodate within its long life (almost 4,000 years!). Students will learn a short history on their instrument, and be able to truly appreciate its humble beginnings as a tortoise shell and a few gut strings! Practice methods and the process of learning and being able to physically carryout advanced guitar techniques will be taught. Students will be taught exercises to better their dexterity and strumming or picking ability, techniques that are common to certain genres of music, and will also be given free time to practice or ask a teacher about a particular song or project that they are interested in. Each student will choose a goal to work on for the week and will be required to try their best to accomplish it within the week.
Guitar week will culminate with a performance on Friday or Saturday night. Students may choose to perform, or just attend the performance. Each student will choose a goal to work on for the week and will be required to try their best to accomplish it within the week. Recordings of their performances will be available after the class has ended as well.
