This workshop covers a wide variety of rock & blues. Are you currently taking lessons? No experience or limited experience playing with others? This workshop is for you! Learn band dynamics! Learn the ins and outs of what's going on in each song. Determine what key the song is in, how to solo over the changes, find the right rhythm to play and sing along with the other instruments. This workshop allows vocalists to feel the songs & work on getting the right vocal accompaniment without having to rush thru each song. Let's open that music door together. You'll have fun making music in a non-judgmental, welcoming environment. This workshop will get you ready for the next step, a performance workshop. Instructor: Kelley Kelley
