Learning to play an instrument (or learning to sing) is a challenging undertaking. Sometimes it seems impossible to get to the "next level" of musicianship. The group method provides a fun and supportive environment to share the learning experience and connect with your musical peers. Most importantly, it prepares you to perform and demonstrate your talents in front of others.
Whether you want develop or a diversify your repertoire, or work on a particular performance aspect (e.g., improve ability to play and sing simultaneously), Hootenanny House has the class for you.
Group Guitar (4-week or 8-week)*
Classes revolve around a group or artist (e.g., Beatles, Dylan) or genre (swing jazz, 70's funk). Over the course of 4 or 8 weeks, the group will work on one or two songs per week, learning to master the elements of rhythm, melody, harmony and musicianship. A performance will be held on the last class date where you can demonstrate your chops in front of friends and family.
Classes are offered evenings and weekends (see offerings below).
