Acoustic Jam Session

$69

with Pat Colwell

Calendar Jan 22, 2020 at 7 pm, runs for 19 weeks

Tired of strumming your guitar alone in your basement or garage? Ready to take the next step and start playing with others? This class will provide students with a low pressure, non judgmental opportunity to experience the joy that comes from making music with other people. We will focus primarily on acoustic guitar-based music, but other acoustic instruments such as mandolins, fiddles, bass & harmonicas are welcome, as are people who would like to try singing with a group. Students should have a solid understanding of their instruments including tuning, basic chords and rhythm patterns and be willing to work in small groups with other musicians. The ability to accept constructive feedback from an instructor is also important.
