Caffè Lena School of Music: Clawhammer Banjo Course with Bruce Molsky

October 28 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 7:00 pm on Wednesday, repeating until November 11, 2020

A four week online course taught by renowned old-time musician Bruce Molsky.
We’ll look at a couple of classic tunes and focus on the important elements, like phrasing and rhythm, and work on techniques such as pull-offs, drop thumbs and rolls. Solid time is the engine behind good banjo playing, and so we’ll come back to some of the right hand basics as well that give the drive we’re all looking for.
Time: The course will take place on Wednesdays from 7:00pm – 8:30pm
Dates: October 21st, 28th, November 4th and 11th
The workshop will be taught on the Zoom internet platform. Headphones or earbuds will be really helpful. Instructions for signing on will be sent to registrants when they enroll.
Suggested experience level: If you have at least a small repertoire of tunes and feel comfortable learning short phrases by ear, then you’ll be fine.
