When: Nearly every Monday of the month from 5.30pm to 7pm and Wednesday from 5.40pm to 7pm (or 7.10pm if we can!)...
Where: JAMS, 631 1/2 N Milpas St, Santa Barbara, CA 93193
In this ongoing workshop, women will learn the fundamentals of guitar, bass and ukulele (each participant can select one of these instruments to play).
- learn how to play and sing popular songs together
- the common structures and progressions of popular songs
- how to transpose songs into different keys to accommodate their own vocal ranges
- how to improvise and play simple solos
- how to begin to play by ear
- how to play music with others
- and more…
Participants will have the opportunity to meet other local musically inclined women and connect socially as well as musically. We will periodically have (optional) performances, giving the participants the opportunity to showcase what they have learned. Have you ever wanted to learn an instrument but just not gotten around to it yet? Or do you secretly play alone in your bedroom but wish to meet others with whom you can jam? Perhaps you know how to play one of the stringed instruments but would like to learn a different one in order to diversify your musical experience... Have you wanted to come to the JAMS open jam session but would like to learn some structure before doing so? The casual and warm atmosphere will help all participants feel comfortable and welcome.
