Make Me Musical - Andy Eastwood [Intermediate level]

Andy Eastwood – Intermediate level

Workshop at 10:30am

So you’ve learnt the right notes in the right order… what next?

In this workshop Andy guides us to look at the skills of musicianship and musicality, introducing ear training exercises, developing musical memory and devising practice techniques that really work. The aim is to stop staring at those chord sheets and start thinking like a musician!

The workshop will suit intermediate levels, but would be an insight for all.

Why On Earth Would I Subject Myself To Learning Chord Theory - Mark Mangan [Intermediate level]

Mark Mangan – Intermediate level

Workshop at 10:30am

I asked myself, if I could go back in time and teach myself one thing about music, what would it be? The answer I came up with was chord theory.

I wish somebody had sat me down early on, and explained that rather than me trying to remember a seemingly infinite series of shapes and meaningless names, I could instead learn a couple of theory concepts and I’d be able to play any chord simply by examining the chord’s name. The name of the chord actually tells you how to play it, if you know chord theory. This was a game-changer for me, and it can be for you too.

It doesn’t always have to be the same old up and down. In this workshop Zaza teaches you a bunch of cool tricks and grooves that will wow your friends, foes and fellow ukers. The techniques include the weird but wonderful finger-flap, a nifty fingerpicking swing and Zaza’s own magical Peacock strum. They’ll work in all music styles, or maybe none but you’ll have fun doing it anyway. Guaranteed!
