Ensembles and more.
WILLDEBIETZ BLUES ENSEMBLE
This ensemble, suitable for beginner to intermediate learners, leads students through the history, social significance, theory, technique, composition, and performance of the blues genre.
Participants in this class learn to play classic blues standards and compose their own 12-bar blues pieces. They perform not only at our end-of-semester recitals, but in the community as well!
Enrollment in private lessons at Willdebietz Music Conservatory is required for participation.
MUSIC THEORY AND SONGWRITING
Whether you want to compose a symphony or a radio hit, our Music Theory and Songwriting class will get you there. Using fresh, up-to-date curriculum, we examine components of composition such as form, melody, harmony, rhythm, and counterpoint, as well as the musicianship needed to carry out your vision.
**This group class is currently and temporarily being offered as a one-on-one class due to health and safety restrictions**
This class is geared toward non-drummers who would like to more fully grasp the vast and exciting world of rhythm, or percussionists who would like to take their rhythmic theory to the next level.
Our Rhythmic Studies class covers all aspects of subdivision, polyrhythm and polymeter, world rhythms, and more.
Participants will perform at the end-of-semester recitals and may have opportunities to perform throughout the community as well.
