- School of Music class
Join the Bluegrass Ensemble and get some experience playing with mandolin players, fiddlers, guitarists, vocalists, and more. Singer-songwriters, join us if you’d like to work on arrangements of your songs with a band. All instruments are welcome. This class will focus on Bluegrass tunes, but will also touch on Americana, folk, blues, country, and old-time, depending on students’ interests. We’ll be covering Americana, folk, blues, country, old-time and bluegrass. The specific genres and songs will depend on which instruments are represented in the ensemble. Students should have basic knowledge about chords and how to play their instrument.
This class will be held from 8:00-9:15pm on Wednesdays: Jan. 9, 16, 23, 30, Feb. 6, 20.
Please note: The Passim School of Music is located at 26 Church St. Cambridge, MA. Classrooms are located on the third floor and, unfortunately, we do not have an elevator.
