intermediate through advanced; students must have a basic knowledge of harmony (spelling triads)
Have you ever wanted to improvise on the classical guitar, but don’t know where to start? Learning improvisation through preluding will be a great place to begin. Apart from being a fun way of creating music, improvisation is a great means to improve one’s musicianship and understanding of musical styles.
This class will provide participants with a template and strategies to improvise a prelude. Students will learn about preluding through: modeling preludes from the guitar as well as the keyboard literature; simple harmonic patterns; guided exercises.
Class will include 7 class meetings, along with 2 individual, 30-minute lessons in weeks 4 and 8 of the 9-week quarter (time scheduled directly with the instructor in the Monday 5:30-8:30 timeframe).
Fee: $10 registration fee; $181* tuition per session; $153 if enrolled in individual lessons at Hochstein. (Fee as of Fall 2021)
