PREMIER PERFORMANCE BAND PROGRAMS FOR ADULTS   
Enhance your understanding of how a band works. Break down the songs in detail, stretch out, learn beginnings & endings, refine solos, rhythms, patterns & leads. Gain control over sound and technique, go over individual parts & combine them to create a better band sound. Learn different ways to approach a song while gaining confidence as a player. Play & learn from an advanced level instructor.
 
JAM PROGRAMS
Utilizing Music Makers extensive library of charted songs you'll get together for several sessions with the same group and have a great time playing some music. This is a fun, relaxed environment
 
SPECIALTY GROUP GUITAR COURSES
  • Blues Comping   Expand your chordal and rifting range when comping over 1 4 -5 blues tunes and beyond. We'll analyze songs and chord shapes, play variations of dominant 7th and 9th chords across the fretboard and develop your rifting skills for in between chord changes.  
  • Signature Licks & Riffs   Analyze and learn the riffs/licks/leads note for note.  Discover neck/finger positions and what strings these riffs are played on.  Examine the player's attack and tone used to achieve that "sound". Work on the timing and accuracy.  Mimic the correct bends and inflections.  Discuss why these riffs work so darn well for the song.
Kids & Teens
Studying an instrument can not only be extremely enjoyable for kids but The New York Times article "Is Music the Key to Success" states that "Multiple studies link music study to academic achievement." (but we don’t have to tell them that). What’s important to them is that its fun and they learn the music that they know and love.
