Beginning and IntermediateGuitar ~ with Larry Ferrara
The goal of the class will be to inspire, relax, and create beautiful music. You will play, perform, and learn pieces, under the pines and starlit nights. Opportunities will exist to form guitar ensembles and to play your newly learned works. The weeklong guitar activities will culminate in a fun and lively concert.
Suitable for all levels, this intensive course will both introduce guitar to the beginner and further develop fundamental skills for intermediate players. The focus will be on finger style guitar playing, reading notes and tablature, learning pieces, playing chords to songs with added strumming and classical arpeggios, learning basic music theory, and developing guitar technique.
The classes will be structured with a combination of group study and private lessons, providing opportunity for both one-on-one time and group ensemble. These meetings will bring together the enjoyed practice and performance of daily lessons with others while furthering private time to work on one's own musical projects.
Advanced students can take advantage of private lessons to meet specific musical needs or questions and atthe same time the group work will provide ensemble experience and the practice in performing with others.
