SUMMER GUITAR COURSE

Have fun boosting your guitar playing skills

3 Day Summer Guitar Course

Making music is the true road to mastery

If you are looking for a fun and engaging guitar course, look no further.​ Join us for a 3 day guitar course in January 2023. The perfect way to spend the new year improving your playing skills, whilst having a great time with fellow musicians. We will practice 3 songs over the course of 3 days, by playing them together.

 

Each song will have multiple parts so you can focus on playing the parts you wish to improve on. Musical styles will include Rock, Blues and Folk. We will practice songs we know and love, I'll throw in a wild card and ultimately we will create a new song together. The best part is that there is no need to prepare a thing, just bring some enthusiasm, your guitar & enjoy!

ABOUT THE COURSE

WHY GROUP LESSONS

By playing in a group we can practice multiple parts of a song with different levels of complexity. We learn to play together, communicate music and develop skills at our own level and area of interest.
Group lessons also allow us to inspire each other, share ideas, tips and tricks.
Ultimately, we aim to have a good time.

THE STRUCTURE

  1. We will investigate everyone's musical interests and aspirations.

  2. We will listen and break down songs, understand their key components.

  3. We will practice elements of the song that fit your level of interest.

  4. We will also create a song together with various parts to practice.

WHAT WILL I LEARN

The summer course will help you to:

  • Develop a musical ear

  • Learn how to play parts of songs

  • Explore techniques like strumming, finger-picking and solo-ing

  • Some practical Music Theory

  • Keep the beat and get into the groove

  • Compose a song.

ACOUSTIC OR ELECTRIC

I love both, so I won't discriminate. Many songs use both. Depending on everyone's needs we can do acoustic or electric guitar sessions or combine the two. This will depend on the participants, but we will make it work to our advantage.

WHAT DO I NEED TO START

  1. A guitar, capo, pick, tuner and slide

  2. A guitar stand

  3. A grasp of basic major and minor chords (but don't sweat over it)

  4. Enthusiasm

 You do not need books. We will use our ears and creativity. I will make recordings or create live loops to help us practice. The point is to learn and have a good time.

COMMUNITY ACCESS

To support the lessons I have created an online music community for fellow musicians. It will have a summer lesson section to share notes and recordings. By participating in the lessons, you get access to the community page. All you have to do is to create a log-in.

PRICING

3 day summer course:

375 AUD (including GST).


As a summer course participant you'll get the chance to take part in the music and guitar workshop the Friday prior to the course at the reduced alumni/student fee.​ The combined price for the workshop + 3 day summer course is 500 AUD.
