If your skill set includes those in the Guitar 3 description, or beyond, you'll want to stretch your playing in an Ensemble Class.
Ensemble classes explore and perform the music of specific artists or genres, together in a multi-instrument band setting. Our diverse ensemble catalog covers the likes of Gypsy Jazz, Modern Country, Beatles, Beck, Blues, Motown, Women’s Rock and much more.
You already can play guitar, it’s a facet of your expression and now you want to expand your abilities with the guidance of our expert teaching artists. We offer a robust range of specific skill classes including: Blues, Bluegrass, Fingerstyle, Pop/Rock, Jazz, Country, Old Time, World Music and more. There are also classes that address distinct elements of guitar playing: Fingerboard Theory, Lead, Rhythm, Fingerpicking, Flatpicking, Slide, Chord Vocabulary, Electric Guitar, Bass and others. Give us a call and we’ll help you meet your goals.
You are a guitar player looking for instruction to further your creative output. By all means, many of the Ensembles, Skills and Theory offerings suggested above can assist in achieving your objectives. In addition, Old Town School provides a rich curriculum in Songwriting. Our classes and workshops are led by accomplished songsmiths that furnish a welcoming environment to help launch creative juices.
A few quick questions to help you figure out which class is right for you.
Should you find yourself in a class that is either too slow or way above your personal level of play, no problem – just give Jimmy T. a call at 773.751.3371, and he'll get you into a class that fits more comfortably.
Beyond Guitar 3 is a class developed for those who want to continue their core guitar studies at our Armitage location where we are somewhat limited on space. We also offer this class during our weekday morning time slots where enrollment is somewhat limited. Call it whatever you want, it's a splendid opportunity to develop those basic skills needed to get better on your instrument. We urge folks to repeat Beyond Guitar 3 as much as they deem rewarding. The materials covered are always changing.
