Acoustic Bass Workshop (Missy Raines)
“Join me for an intensive 2 hour hands-on Bass Workshop. We’ll cover some basic fundamentals including right hand technique, left hand technique, getting good tone, and keeping good time. We’ll hone our ear training skills a little and unlock the number system while playing a new song or two. We’ll also discuss the important role of the bass in a bluegrass band and how to be the best support player you can be. All levels welcome. Bring your instrument.”
Fiddle Workshop (George Jackson)
“Join George Jackson for a fiddle workshop for students of all levels and interests. Some topics George will cover in this class include: – Breaking down old-time and bluegrass fiddle bowings, Introduction to modes, Composing tunes and where to start, and playing fiddle tunes with others (guitar players, banjo players).”
Guitar Workshop (Ben Garnett)
“A workshop centered around a collaborative and conversational Q&A session, to bring insight to any music/guitar-related questions you might have. Topics of discussion could include, but are not limited to, strengthening right & left hand techniques, rhythm guitar playing, developing a good ear, strengthening your time feel, an introduction to improvisation (all styles), how to arrange music, how to compose music, how to play well with others (listening & reacting while playing), philosophies on growing and getting better, philosophies on broad musical/life topics – finding your “voice,” getting gigs, playing with others, etc. Would love to see you there! Instruments are not required.”
