Specialty & Ensemble Classes

Specialty and Ensemble classes for adults provide a thematic exploration into a particular genre, songwriter or topic. These classes are perfect for intermediate musicians looking to expand their skills, dive deeper into themes and genres, while playing music with other instruments.

These classes are geared for players who have played their instrument before, with a basic-intermediate level knowledge of chords and melody.

Each class will also be live-streamed and recorded for individuals who are not able to attend in person. 

Folk Ensemble
with Brian Nelson and Karina Wilson

This class breaks down what it means to play with others through some of your favorite folk tunes—both old and new. Students can take this class in perpetuity; new songs are explored each session. 

 

Tuesdays, 7-8:15pm, September 12-November 14. $225.

Sold out.

Songwriting

with Lucy Barna

Learn the various elements involved in crafting an original song, exploring form, common chord progressions, rhyme and lyrical structure, and the all-important-aspect, inspiration. Students will be guided through the process of composing and documenting their own songs. No prior musical experience is necessary. Instruments are welcome, but this class can also be approached from a writing perspective without needing to play.  ​

Tuesdays, 6-7:15pm, September 12-November 14. $225.

Canceled.
