Live in Concert
At the Creative Guitar School we love to improvise. We learn to play different styles of music in solo and also in group formats. All music styles, flamenco, jazz, or blues, require strong melodic and harmonic embellishment techniques; to make the music flow and your personal expression come alive.
Here is a video of Ethan playing a bluesy tune, at one of our School Concerts. Great groove, great chord comping and also great soloing; defining the chord progressions and also creating contrast with the blues sound.
We learn to understand the different roles in an arrangement
Lead , background , rhythm, chords. I have a variety of compositions in various styles that students, once completed, level 2 are able to perform in group settings. Here I have two examples of group arrangements.
We have fun at all levels
This is a performance of students, that have finished level 1, playing two songs: a classic by Bob Marley and also an Irish Jig Boys of Blue Hill.
Guitar creativity on the rise
Students must compose their own songs in all courses and levels at our Melbourne Creative Guitar School. Music is a language we use to express emotions. I trust, you agree that our language skills improve when we write an essay. In music, it is also the same, but in this case we write musical essays: compositions.
All students feel great joy when they hear how their emotions come to life in their guitar compositions.
Please enjoy both the the audio and video files of Jamie’s composition. It is based on the Ionian mode with modal interchange from the aeolian mode.
