Class of Masters – March
March 14, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm$20
Concluding our Irish Session Band, we will try out the chord progressions and rhythms with some proper fiddle ‘chunes’ and maybe a song. This may be performed at the St. Paddy’s Jam recital!
About The Event
This dynamic group class is about accompaniment to songs and tunes. It is all levels, all instruments, 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 gain a better understanding of chords and rhythm in many different musical styles.
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.
This class can be used as a free monthly tribe event for registered Tribesters, as well as in exchange for a missed lesson. Otherwise it is $20.
