In conjunction with The ARTS Music Store and the Aurora Public Library, the Aurora Winter Blues Festival is thrilled to offer this workshop. You won't want to miss this fun and interactive workshop hosted by Teacher Extraordinaire - Kenzie MacMillan.
In this workshop we will be focusing on the ways major and minor blues licks can be played over either major or minor chords to get more mileage from the same patterns. We will begin by learning some basic blues accompaniment (depending on instrument) and graduate to some simple lead licks/melodies to play over top. All ages, instruments*, and experience levels are welcome. Come on out and learn something new, meet some great folks and have some fun.
*In an effort to keep volume levels reasonable there won't be a drum kit, but hand percussion can be arranged for in advance. We ask that brass/woodwind players have at least one year of experience.
One lucky participant in the workshop will win 4 free music lessons at The Arts Music Store (valued at $116.00).
