Are you someone who plays piano, learned a scale or two, but never figured out how to jump into a jam session and plunk along? Do you play basic chords on guitar, ukulele or mandolin? Maybe you even rip some sweet solos but feel some theory instruction might help you put it to use in real time? This class is designed for adults who want to develop musical improvisation skills. Discover the basics of chord theory, lead-sheet reading and ear training and use these skills to train your jamming muscles. Bring your instruments and try out some others such as piano, guitar, cello, ukulele and drums. This class will get you strumming, tapping and bowing along, building up confidence needed to jump in and jam at your next backyard party. Register now for winter session.
