Blues Ensembles

Come together with others and make a sound greater than the sum of its parts.

You've studied your axe for a while, played scales, memorized melodies, maybe even taken a little theory, and now it's time to apply these skills and play with others.

To get the most out of the class, you'll need to be able to play your instrument at an intermediate level. For folks who have taken our core guitar programs - you'll fit right in most ensembles once you've taken Guitar 3. After that, the sky is the limit.

Drummers are encouraged to bring their own cymbals and snare. Vocalists are encouraged to bring their own microphone and microphone stand. Electric guitar players are to bring a small, 10 Watt practice amp. Banjo players are encouraged to bring tuners.

Many ensemble classes conclude with a public performance either in the confines of the School or at a local venue. Please be advised if an ensemble choses to perform it will generally happen the last weekend of the class or the following week
