Melbourne Creative Guitar School Events Concerts 2017

Melbourne Creative Guitar School Event- Concert 08-07-2017

On July 8, 2017  from 11 to 2 p.m, we will celebrate our Creative Guitar School Social Club Concert. All students will perform in duos, trios and quartets, a selection of repertoire from the our School Curriculum at our Melbourne Creative Guitar School Event.

I organise these concerts on a regular basis, to encourage student interaction.  All students, at my school,  learn to compose and arrange their own compositions.  I am very happy to gather a creative group of songwriters that are very eager to share their music with other students.

This concert is a free event for all students and families. If you are not one of the previous and you would like to attend, please send me an email and I will send you a complimentary pass.

Melbourne Creative Guitar School event - concert -2

 

At the Creative Guitar School,  I focus on developing self expression through personal creativity. But this must be accomplished with the joy of sharing who we are, and what we feel with others. Not only must we express, but do so in manner where others can understand the emotion we wish to portray. Music is a language that requires a clear exposition of melody and accompaniment.

Concerts are held at the end of a 10 week cycle. On the same day, and before each event, we organise a get together with food, drinks and a barbecue. The concert is recorded on video and shared privately with all attendants.

We all came armed with our guitars, marching like true stars!

Melbourne Creative Guitar School event - concert-3Congratulations to everyone. What a delightful day having you all play at our regular Creative Guitar School Concert. We held the concert on September 23, at the Armadale Uniting Church Hall.

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.

Melbourne Creative Guitar School event - concert -6

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 chords of 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.

Melbourne Creative Guitar School Event- Concert 09-12-2017

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.

Guitar lessons and the baby chair Melbourne Creative Guitar School event - concert

In the picture, we have the baby chair,  which unfortunately did not fit any of our sitting postures.

In the following picture we can see, and really get the feeling of how hard a student has to think, to remember the name of the song they  have to play. memory test with phong guitar lessons Melbourne Creative Guitar School event - concert

The concert was a great success and once again I must say thank you for making the Creative Guitar School the place to be.
