Music Theory Workshop
Monday Sept. 16 at 6 PM
This is an open forum for students who want to know more about music
theory. All questions are welcome. We talk about soloing, modes, the circle
of 5ths, keys, all kinds of crazy stuff. It’s fun!
Monday December 9 at 7:15 PM
For guitar and bass students: Popular jazz standards will be rehearsed. Easy
parts to play and lots of help during this workshop. If you want to just
watch and listen and ask questions, that’s fine. Bring your guitar anyway so
you can try the stuff out while you are there.
The classification “Jazz” has a huge array of styles and is associated with
music that is harmonically more complex than folk, rock, or pop music.
Learning about new tonalities and putting them to work to enhance your
music is fun. Learning new chords will help train your ear and inspire new
ideas in your own music.
The workshops are upstairs in the SMI building next to Guitar Showcase.
It ends at 8:30. You need to at least know some basic bar chords.
The tunes for December will be “Tenor Madness”, and the popular Holiday
song “Sleigh Ride”. We will analyze and play these tunes.
If you want a PDF of the music, E-mail me!
See you there, -John
