Saturdays, 9am to 10:30am Saturday 22 April to Saturday 17 June
Bring your guitar to this fun and inclusive learning environment for both acoustic and electric guitars.
Receive support and structure to build the foundations of music with the guitar, in an ensemble learning environment suitable for all players, from complete beginners to intermediate.
Students will progress towards preparing and performing a repertoire of songs as an ensemble, specially arranged by Luis with individual parts for both beginner and advanced players.
Music choices are based on popular choices from the group, and will reflect the mix of ages and interests: from jazz to contemporary rock.
The beginners and continuers groups run for 1.5 hours each, but cross over in the middle:
Beginner players will start at 9am.
In the first hour with Luis, you will be introduced to the basic positions and posture, learning the notes, chords and rhythms. The course content and teaching is easy to follow and accommodates complete beginners to those with a basic knowledge of the guitar.
From 10 to 10:30am, the class becomes an immersive, ensemble musical experience, applying the basic techniques you have learnt through preparing and performing as an ensemble with the continuers group.
Continuing players will join the group at 10am for a half-hour session as a full ensemble, before the beginners finish at 10:30am. Continuers are those students who already know the key positions, chords and basic tablature reading (level 2 beginners to intermediate).
