Melbourne Creative Guitar School Concert September 23
We all came armed with our guitars, marching like true stars!
The warm up lunch and the aftermath, truly justified all the hard work you have put into your guitar.
We all know that guitar playing requires discipline. It is a daily journey exploring, enjoying aspects of who you are, that are hidden behind layers of our constrained emotional adulthood. Music brings out the child inside of us, who wishes to explore and enjoy life with true happiness.
On September 23, we heard songs from Hendrix, Bob Dylan, Bach, Paco de Lucia, Beatles, Adele, MGMT and many more. Students played solo, in duos, trios and in quartet.
Guitar Lessons Structured Learning
The objective of the Creative School Music Curriculum is to encourage guitar students to learn songs in a manner where they can play them live, in a group, or an ensemble.
We play all contemporary music styles as: jazz, pop, reggae , blues, funk, and especially flamenco which is one of my guitar passions.
We require all students to understand concepts of structure, harmony, melodic variations, rhythmic variations, improvisation and composition. All students learn to hear a melody and play it on the spot. They also learn to identify the chord sof the songs they wish to play, by understanding the tonal centre, and the chords derived from such.
Our creative self expression will benefit from structured learning. I also set guidelines to help achieve our musical objetives with true satisfaction.
We will be holding our next concert this coming December. It will be the last Creative Guitar School event of the year. I am looking forward to seeing you all there.
