spirited explorations of several musical styles – from Bach to Joplin to
Latin folk songs – with Yukon audiences.
Classical guitar trio, Partrita will present a 2-hour workshop, entitled Intro to Classical Guitar. Guitarists of all ages and levels are welcome. Please bring your guitars. Knowledge of basic chords and/or notes in first position will be helpful. Following a demonstration and discussion by the trio of basic classical techniques, as well as a brief overview of classical guitar history, the trio will break the participants into 3 groups to work on a classical ensemble piece. Each group will work on a specific part and technique used in the piece. At the end of the class, we will regroup and perform the piece together!
