I am running a Summer workshop for children ages 10 – 15. From Monday January 12th – Thursday January 15th 2015.
It will be a small workshop. 5 Spots ONLY. It will be 4 half days of singing, guitar playing and song writing.
We’ll do lots of group work, writing lyrics, learning to improvise with our voices, writing songs as a group, introduction to harmony singing, song structure, rhyming patterns and a little music theory.
They’ll learn to play chords, we’ll do strumming and picking techniques, and as part of this they will learn to play and sing a couple of songs, and learn to play and sing together as a group.
Each of them will also work on writing a song of their own.
They don’t need to have any previous experience in any of the above subjects, but if they do, that’s fine too and I will tailor the experience so everyone has fun, learns lots of new stuff and gets a challenge in each of the areas.
They will need to have a guitar for the class but experience has shown me that most families either have a guitar some where in the house or can borrow one from a friend or family member.
It will be an opportunity for them to experience different aspects of their creativity and musicality without having to commit to a new instrument or discipline, but it just might spark a new musical love:)
