Class of Masters – February
February 22, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm$20
We continue our journey into becoming the world’s BEST Celtic Session band. We’ll review chord progressions for jigs and reels and add 2 kinds of rhythmic syncopation.
About The Event
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.
Class of Masters can be a tribesters free monthly event, or used in exchange for a missed lesson. Otherwise it’s $20.
