Melbourne Creative Guitar School Concert December 9
Every 10 weeks, all my guitar students get together, enjoy a nice lunch and perform a memorable concert.
I just love how music lovers can join to share their passion of life through music. As always, it feels just great to see everyone having such a good time with music, and all our friends.
In the picture, we have the baby chair, which unfortunately did not fit any of our sitting postures.
The concert was a great success and once again I must say thank you for making the Creative Guitar School the place to be.
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.
