We always have a cracking time when we run a Rock course and we’ll cover the following elements:
In addition we’ll look at:
As with all our courses, there’ll be non-stop playing using some great tunes throughout; this is a technique-focused, repertoire-laden course with tons of tunes and some practical theory to add context to everything.
Who’s suitable for this course? A broad guideline is that the course is accessible to average-and-above acoustic, electric and bass players; it’s definitely not for beginners. If you can play open and basic barre chords, with a sprinkling of the pentatonic scales in at least one position, then you’re good to go.
Matching a player’s skill level and aspirations to a course isn’t a science! Players can be brilliant at music knowledge but still struggle to play and vice versa. There are two resources which might be able to help you make a self-assessment:
Once you’ve looked through the above, a chat about the course is always a good idea. It’s important that you feel comfortable about the course.
Once signed up, Prep Sheets are available for this course to help with some focused revision/practice and maybe to help fill any knowledge gaps.
Before the course you’ll be sent a comprehensive set of Joining Instructions covering directions to the venue, what to bring and what will be provided, what to do on arrival, etc.
After the course, we make all materials available to you via Dropbox e.g. flip charts, group photos, recordings and videos along with any additional music or information PDFs.
Mini break-outs are used for private practice and consolidating concepts. There will be ample opportunities to jam and perform solo. You’ll also pick up a bunch of hints and tips directly from fellow players.
As with all our courses having fun and a sociable time with like-minded hobbyists is at the heart of everything – it’s as important as the learning and playing!
Our Early Bird Offer is available on this course – the pricing below reflects our December-only offers. See NEWS for details.
