Group Music & Improv Class
Tuesday night - 7:00 - 8:00 PM
Hello and welcome!
This is an invitation to anyone and everyone who is interested in playing music with other people to come and learn better how to do just that!
Guitar Merchant is offering this Group Music & Improv class every Tuesday night from 7:00-8:00pm.
Attendees will learn, most importantly, how to listen well while still playing at the same time and how to improvise and riff off of what other people are doing musically. These are the most important skills in music, and really wind up making or breaking how much fun we have in playing with others, and communicating musically!
Nolan McFadden is facilitating the class, and has been a performer and music educator for many years. He has just recently returned to the states from three years in Asia where he was teaching music in New Delhi, India and performing in Thailand.
Come on down and lend an ear and contribute to the making of great music! See you soon. :-)
