Greg's School Music Classes

"Music raises in the mind of the hearer great conceptions: it strengthens and advances praise into rapture."  ~Joseph Addison

music class - drum lesson

School Classes are designed to give students a background in individual and group play.

School Classes are designed to give students a vocabulary of music terminology.

School Classes are designed to allow students to taste many outstanding, high grade, instruments.

School Classes are offered in two primary settings, schools & homes (for home school students).

Every curriculum I offer accounts for individual student learning curves.  Lessons are age and skill appropriate.

Students learn how to use rhythm as a basis for creating improvised and polyrhythmic music.  Harnessing the power to create spontaneous music and learning how to play polyrhythms are the essential goals of this curriculum. Students are taught individual rhythms and how to combine them with other rhythms to create, fun, polyrhythmic music.  And students are taught how to take individual rhythms and vary them on the go, and hence improvise.  Students are also taught how harmony and melody can be applied to polyrhythmic music.  Through this process students learn music terminology and how to read rhythm charts.

All or a combination of the following instruments are used in the classes: ashikos; bodhrans; bongos; congas; djembes; doumbeks; ocean drums; talking drums; chimes; gongs; kalimbas; piano, if available; steel pans; xylophones; gongs; singing bowls and various sound effects and hand-held percussion.
