Jr. Folk Music Intermediate Music Group an ensemble music program for fiddle, banjo and guitar students. The course is taught by skilled performers and teachers; Glendon Jones and Christopher White.

Students will receive small group instruction on the instrument that they choose, and ensemble instruction on how to play with a group during a two hour time slot on Wednesdays.

Instrumental skills and technique are taught, but an emphasis is placed on how to be part of a band, how to interact and support each other, and how to solo and improvise as well as building upon repertoire. Students will also learn to sing while playing, and harmonize with other musicians. Music will be learned by ear, but sheet music and tab will also be provided. The goal of every session is a 35-60 minute final performance in the Jalopy Theatre or alternative space.

Social and cooperative group games as well as group discussions about the music are added to every lesson to enhance the experience, and allow the students to learn cooperatively. The students will have a short break during the period of two hours where they can bring a snack and interact with each other.

Banjos, fiddles and guitars are available to rent for the course, at a cost of $50. FINANCIAL AID AVAILABLE! For more information, or to register, please visit www.jalopytheatre.org or email lynette@jalopytheatre.org.
