- School of Music class
When I first learned how to finger pick, I thought, “Now I’m a REAL guitar player.” I’ve checked in from time to time with my Guitar 2 students and apparently, I’m not alone in that feeling.
As with my other classes, you’ll learn finger picking, a few strum patterns and basic music theory in the context of playing specific songs. I’ll also help you create a manageable practice regimen (even for us over scheduled, over functioning New Englanders!).
This level is right for you as long as you can switch between open chords with relative comfort.
· 6 weekly classes
· Sheet Music
· Let Me Take The Mystery Out Of It music theory worksheets
· Access to video lessons of all 6 classes plus 3 bonus videos
· Mp3s of class songs

Then get ready to rock ‘n roll in Guitar 2.
“Janet Feld’s guitar playing is a pleasure to listen to – she finds a way to keep the rhythm going while adding a lovely little riff. In a world of strumming, she looks for interesting picking patterns. She understands the guitar. She knows how to play it – and how to teach it.”
This class will be held from 8:00-9:15pm on Tuesdays: March 13, 20, 27, April 3, 10, 17
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.
Award winning singer-songwriter, Janet Feld, captivates audiences across the nation and listeners across the globe with engaging performances filled with her wry sense of humor and sassy playfulness.
Audiences find themselves moved as the music shifts from the engrossing true story, Rosalie’s Diamonds, that describes how Feld’s grandmother rescued her family from Nazi-occupied Austria in the late 1930’s to her deeply introspective work in I Met Myself to her description of love’s unpredictable journey in Waiting for Love.
Sought after for her talents as an opening artist, Janet has opened for Cheryl Wheeler, Aztec Two Step, John Gorka, Dar Williams, and Tom Kimmel. She has also performed at folk festivals from coast to coast throughout her nearly three decade career.
Janet’s recordings range from productions with a host of studio musicians to the simple clarity of a voice and guitar, with a touch of piano. I Met Myself is her newest release which Janet feels is her most authentic work to date.
Janet loves to perform because of the way she connects with audience members and the meaning in the interactions. Janet recalls, “After I performed Rosalie’s Diamonds at a Unitarian Universalist church for their observance of Yom Hashoah, the Holocaust Remembrance Day, a woman in the congregation stood up and ‘came out’ to everyone as a Holocaust survivor for the first time. She’d been a member of this church for over 20 years, and no one knew. Afterward she came over to me and took my hands and said, ‘We don’t even have to speak.’ To me, that’s the meaning of music, the way it communicates something to the deepest part of the soul.”
In addition to performing, Janet teaches guitar and songwriting at The Passim School of Music. She is also the Founder and Chief Music Officer of Janet’s Planet: Music Lessons For Humanoids, Inc., offering private lessons and video lesson programs to people of all ages. Her goal is to help people experience the fact that you don’t have to be from the “special talented people” planet in order to play music.
