IN-PERSON: Bluegrass Ensemble
- School of Music class
**DUE TO THE RECENT SPIKE IN COVID CASES, IN-PERSON CLASSES WILL MEET ONLINE THE WEEKS OF JAN 10TH & 17TH – PROOF OF VACCINATION WILL BE REQUIRED WHEN CLASSES RESUME IN-PERSON THE WEEK OF JAN 24TH**
The Passim Bluegrass Ensemble is a six-week group class that offers a relaxed space to learn new music and gain experience playing with other musicians. This class will focus on Bluegrass and Bluegrass-adjacent styles of music, studying the elements of melody, harmony, and groove that create the ear-catching sounds we know and love. We will discuss different roles that instruments in the ensemble can play, and how those roles interact with one another. In addition to learning new music class members will be able to work on essential jamming techniques such as leading a tune and learning songs on the fly.
Class members should have basic knowledge of chords, and be comfortable learning music by ear or with sheet music. All musicians – instruments and voices – are welcome!
This class will only be offered in-person this semester. If there is sufficient interest, a Hybrid version of this class may be offered in our Winter semester. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in seeing this happen.
This class will be held from 6:30-7:45pm ET on Tuesdays, Jan 11, 18, 25, Feb 1, 8, 15
