Thu, Aug 13
Dani Joy will be with us to teach a 1 hour class:
Hello Strum, Nice to Meet You!

Is your club in the down-up strumming rut, otherwise known as Incessant Strumming Syndrome?
In this workshop you will learn some simple dynamic techniques which will take your strum to the next level.
We will talk about volume control, attack, how to add flourishes to spice things up and above all; how to listen.
You’ll be adding texture and soothing accompaniment before you know it!
