Winter Class of Masters – “Holiday Backup Band” Part 1

November 20, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Our Winter holidays are full of friends, inspiration, nostalgia and harmony. We will all become back-up singers for 1 or 2 favorite traditional holiday songs. These songs will be performed at the “Ho Ho Holiday Jam Recital,” on December 18.

Musical concepts include: sight singing, music analysis and listening, chord progressions, accidentals, ear training, music listening skills, voice leading, harmony composition, major/minor triads, rhythm skills.

Gearing up for the holidays, we will focus on some traditional Holiday music accompaniment

About The Event

This dynamic and usually hilarious 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 accompaniment 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
