About our music classes:
Class will have no more than 6 students and will take place in the room by the MPR.
During class, we will work on:
- Techniques for practice and performance
- Understanding chords and chord movements
- Ideas for improvising and writing songs
- Various styles and rhythms on piano
- Tricks, licks and riffs for blues, rock, funk and jazz
Students will also have required listening between classes. We will have discussions on what we listened to and play pieces of the music as well. Some of the songs we will learn to play while discussing how to learn songs by ear, others we will learn from chord charts.
Reading sheet music is not necessary for this course but we will discuss its role in music and how it can be used to fit our needs.
