Guitar Choir is a set of eight one hour weekly sessions geared towards performance of a four to ten piece guitar choir. We will create pieces using layered rhythmic motifs from various cultures and many approaches to chord and scale construction. We will look at various techniques for layering guitars, including some African, Caribbean and Central and South American styles, as well as more modern approaches, such as those of Robert Fripp, Terry Riley and Philip Glass. An intermediate knowledge of how to play the guitar will be necessary for participation in this program.
April 3rd start, 8 weeks, 7:00-8:00pm, $136 members, $156 non.
