Teens Guitar Ensemble (Ages 12-16)

This exciting and fun group plays current hits as well as classic rock/pop with both an acoustic and electric vibe. We recently worked on arrangements of Home (Phillip Phillips), Mrs. Robinson (Simon & Garfunkel), and Hotel California (Eagles) and we’ll be taking on similar songs this fall.

Playing with others in a group is a motivating way to learn guitar and certain aspects of musicianship can only be learned through performing in a group. We have several openings this fall for guitarists, and we’re also adding drums, bass, and singers. We’ll perform “in house” for families and friends as well as at outside venues.

We welcome a variety of playing levels, from advanced beginners through intermediate and advanced players. We have our own custom song arrangements, with different parts matched to different skill levels.

Rehearsals are for 1 hr. 30 mins. per week.

Sign-up is monthly, and you can cancel at any time.

Cost: $95.00 per month. All materials are included.

ADULT ENSEMBLES

 Folk-Rock Ensemble

Looking for a place to play outside your own four walls?  Bring your acoustic or electric guitar and join like-minded folks to play some folk-rock and classic rock – Simon & Garfunkel, the Beatles, Joni Mitchell, The Who, plus songs by some modern artists and lots more, in this adult ensemble and workshop.  It’s a comfortable environment, and with professional direction, we’ll work to get it all right and sounding good.  We’ll shoot for periodic performances at our showcase events and at ‘outside’ venues as well.

Players from advanced beginners through intermediate and more advanced levels are welcome.  Our custom song arrangements have different parts for different skill levels.

Rehearsals are for 1 hr. 15 mins. per week.

Sign-up is monthly, and you can cancel at any time.

 Jazz Guitar Ensemble

Expand your repertoire to learn both swing and latin-based jazz standards. We do a lot of playing, while also taking time to learn jazz and jazz guitar concepts and how to play with a group. Topics include chord voicings and comping styles; learning song forms with intros, turnarounds, and endings; jazz harmony and chord substitutions; how to create good solos, and more. There will also be opportunities to play outside as well.

To participate, you should be more than a beginning guitarist, but a lot of experience with jazz is not necessary.  Please call us to discuss!

Rehearsals are for 1 hr. 30 mins., two times per month.

Sign-up is monthly, and you can cancel at any time.

Cost: $120.00 per month. All materials are included.

Please contact us to register, or for more information.
