Roots&Wings is designed for Musicians ages 10+ to enjoy weekly vocal and instrumental ensemble music making in a fun, challenging mixed-age setting. Included are vocal music, hand percussion, mallet percussion, and basic music theory, and we have a piano, bass and guitar available on site. Horn or string players who have studied for a year or more are welcome to bring their instruments as well. The weekly rehearsals will build technical facility and augment musicianship while emphasizing creativity, improvisation and collaboration. Repertoire draws from blues, jazz, world music and pop favorites as well as original student compositions. Note: This is a 12 week course with no class Oct 5 or Nov 23 and a concert at a local music venue on Saturday, Dec. 17.
