SUMMER MUSIC WORKSHOPS COTTONWOOD VILLAGE AUDITORIUM Tuesday evenings 6:30-8:30
Rhythm 101 - Don't let those pesky rhythms get the best of you! Pat Jarvis brings all her music education experience to the table and teaches you how to read those notes through games and surprisingly fun activities that will leave you confident in your rhythm skills.
Rhythm 201 - Knowing the basics is one ting, but learning how to play with them is even more interesting! We're mixing up rhythm patterns and throwing in some syncopation to get your feet tapping.
Pitch 101 - We've got the solution to those "How does that go?" blues. Joy Simons will show you the easy ways to understand and sing on sight songs you've never seen before.
Pitch 201 - Now you know note reading. Here's how to take that knowledge to the next step. Fun exercises and pattern finding will open your eyes to just how much easier this can be.
History of the Messiah and History of Gospel Music The making of Handel's Messiah was a rocky road. Discover the back story of one of the world's most beloved and performed works. Then take a journey through the roots of one of Americas popular music types. There is more variety in gospel music than most people know!
"Reading the Book" Pat and Joy will take you through what those odd words and signs mean on the music, and how to find out where you are! It sounds elementary, but the insights will give even an experienced chorister something new.
Ragtime, Big Bands, Be-bop, Cool Jazz, "Scramblin' them eggs"... You never know where jazz is going to take you. Its roots stretch across America and have grown into a musical form unlike any other in the world. Come discover what you never knew about the music and musicians of jazz.
