​​Guitar Ensemble Classes

- We will be opening up a new 7.30pm class on Wednesday evening. Get in early so you don't miss your spot!

Playing music with other people is the most rewarding way to do it and this ensemble class will provide the perfect setting for the type of player that would like to add a fun social aspect to their playing. This will keep you more motivated and improve your playing faster. 

This class will cater to a wide range of skill sets and there is nothing to be intimidated about here. If you're a player that's hit a wall with Youtube or someone with a lot of experience, there's something here for you. The music played in this ensemble is written in a way that allows students at varying levels to play the same song.  

In the class we will be looking at:

- ensemble playing and listening 

- sight reading (it doesn't matter if you've never read notated music before)

- improvising

- new tunes (this will be a part of the class where I'll recommend songs for people to learn and also provide video tutorials) 

Both acoustic or electric guitars are welcome. If you're playing electric please bring a lead. Amps will be provided. 

We currently run two adult ensembles on Tuesday evenings, at 6.30pm and 7.30pm at Flood Street Carousel Cafe (cnr of Flood St and Lords Rd, Leichhardt). We're currently enrolling for our new 7.30pm Wednesday class.  Cost is $31 per class.
