Practice Jam Workshop

This workshop will meet a total of four times for two hours each, and consists of learning ten (10) bluegrass standards. Classes will be held on Monday nights from 6:45 p.m. - 8:45 p.m. on July 10 & 24, and August 7 & 21, 2023. You will be expected to volunteer for singing lead on one song, and you will be given help to find the optimum key for your own voice. Tenor harmony will be taught. You will have the opportunity to practice backup, kick-offs, endings and breaks. Since this is a learning class, you are not expected to know all these skills; however, you must be able to make basic chord changes smoothly and keep rhythm at a slow to moderate tempo. We highly recommend that you bring a recording device to class. If you have questions, please feel free to email or call!
