April Class of Masters
Time & Location
About The Event
Note: Untill further notice all group classes will be taught via zoom link. The link will be sent out to registered participants a few minutes prior to the class. Classes can be used in exchange for lessons we had to reschedule or for donation through venmo. @bronwen-beecher, rather than the usual $20 fee.
This dynamic and usually hillarious monthly group class is about accompaniment to songs and tunes. It is for all levels, all instruments, and all ages. Melodic instruments will learn to play notes in the chord structure that sound good behind a soloist, rather than being the soloist. Singers will learn how to improvise backup parts in harmony together based on the chord structure of the song or tune. Guitar and Keyboard players will expand their accompanimnet chops to many different styles of music.
These skills are introduced in “theory” in music theory classes. But, Class of Masters is the only class that puts it in perfect context to practice together and have fun learning as a group.
Regular attendees may be selected to sit in as the “house band” for quarterly Jam Recitals. This can work with or without specific arrangements and rehearsals. The class is designed to prepare all students for impromptu back up parts.
