Philly Music Lessons in conjunction with the Bache-Martin Elementary School’s Saturday Programs in Fairmount, is now offering group music classes, Rock Band and Group Guitar (Ages 8+), starting Saturday, September 15th, 2012. Registration for the 8-week session is $200. Classes will be limited to 5-6 students in each program and both classes will end with a recital that is open to all families and friends. The Bache-Martin Elementary school is located at 22nd and Brown Streets, Philadelphia PA 19130.
Open to Guitar, Bass, Piano, Drums and Vocals, Rock Band is designed to give students who already know the basics of their instrument (1+ years of experience) a chance to play and perform with fellow musicians while learning new music and increasing their musical knowledge in the process. Repertoire will be decided in the first couple classes based on the interests of the students and is not strictly limited to rock music.
The Guitar Class is for guitarists who are just starting out (up to 1 year of experience). The goal is to learn the basics and further their understanding of the instrument among peers in a group setting. Throughout the 8 week program students will learn how to read guitar music, explore some beginning guitar repertoire and practice playing together as a group.
