Looking to get out into the world with your instrument? We’ll help you understand how to follow a chord structure and play along to lyrics. You’ll be ready to go to local jams, play around a campfire, and accompany yourself on your favorite songs. We’ll play songs from a number of genres: bluegrass, classic rock, blues, folk, etc. Bring your song requests too!
This class is geared towards adult and high school learners who can play a little bit already. Students should be able to tune their own instrument, play a few chords & strumming patterns (guitar, mandolin, banjo, ukulele, etc.), and/or play simple melodies and scales (fiddle, harmonica, etc.).
Questions about this class? Contact School of Musical Traditions at (240) 690-1910, or by email.
