Here is a guide to help you better understand our workshop levels. Because each individual looks at this material subjectively, please read each class description as well. These are guidelines, not hard and fast rules.
The class descriptions will be posted by early July.
In addition to the above structure of levels, we have often have two other descriptors, "Advanced" and "All Levels."
To participate in an advanced class, you should:
Be able to jump right into all rhythms and strumming patterns
Be able to handle a bit of fingerstyle picking
Be able to play some chord melody
Know at least two positions for most standard chords
Be able to read at least a bit of tablature and/or notation
Be a quick learner with the ability to understand complex instruction
If you’re not quite there and still want to attend an advanced class, you are welcome to do so. However, please sit at the back or sides of the room and take the role of a passive observer. That is, watch and listen, but allow the advanced students to ask the questions, so they get the most out of their class.
Understanding "All Levels" Classes: This does not necessarily mean it is easy enough for everyone to participate in all aspects of the class. It means that all levels of players will get some benefit from the material presented, including the easier portions being accessible to all players. There will probably be some difficult material as well to challenge more advanced players. Please read each class description!
