Naturally, the endpoint to learning songs and playing an instrument is performing for an audience. I remember my journey with all of its fits and starts…and stops. To help students along their own journey, this class will group students of similar age, genre and interests and give them an opportunity to learn how to play together and get prepared for the stage. The class will consist of 10 60-minute weekly sessions, a dress rehearsal and finally a performance. Repertoire will be selected from what the members already know or what can be agreed upon to learn. All learning materials will provided. Students will bring their instruments to weekly rehearsals (amplification, microphones drum kit and PA provided). The class is open to: guitarists, bassists, vocalists, keyboardists and drummers.
