Paul Mowbray's Blues Guitar Study Group and Jam

Mar 6, 2022 from 3:30pm - 5:30pm

Paul coaches guitarists in our monthly Blues Guitar Study Group using classic songs and artists from the 20s to present. Disecting each song to understand how sound, techniques and form of the piece intersect offers a deep-dive into the heart and soul of the music. 

Our class operates at a gentle pace with lots of opportunity to play rhythm and lead along with discussing anything about the music that adds insight into this foundational form of music. This small group is a great way to unearth a deeper understanding of the Blues.

2 hr class $45.00

Rockshop Band Camp I and II & Triple Threat Musical Theatre Camp

Sep 22 - Dec 8, 2022

Our Camps for kids ages 10-15 get underway in mid-September. It's a fantastic way for students who already play or sing to take their musicianship to the next level. 

Playing with kids their age instills motivation, and our baked-in goal of playing a show at the end of term and going into the recording studio in the spring lends focus and structure to the students throughout the school year.

Listening skills improve rapidly as students bond, make new friends, and learn to work well together in dynamic environments. And it's loads of fun!

We are inclusive, humanly, and musically diverse, maintaining a space of kindness, positivity, and respect.
