We’ve got a busy spring ahead at Guitar Shed with some great events, giveaways, and performance opportunities!
We are excited to return to City Winery (6/1) and Venkman’s (6/2) for our Summer Recitals. Please note that our Kids Recital is on a Saturday as opposed to previous recitals. Sign up begins on 4/1 for both recitals in our student portal. Space is limited, so mark your calendars and familiarize yourself with our student portal before 4/1. You can login on our website here and we are happy to resend your login info if you misplaced it. While you are in the student portal you can also register for our Student Showcase at The Pullman on 3/23. There are still some spots available!
Looking ahead, we’ve got our first ever Guitar Shed “Spring Concert” featuring 3 of our groups: Teen Band, Americana Ensemble and Rock Ensemble on 4/15. Also, CAMP WOODSHED is back this year and we have added a session for our younger shedders. Early bird sign up ends on 3/31. Take advantage of a $25 discount!
Thank you to all of our campers who participated in Camp Woodshed! We had two very talented groups of performers that both learned two songs in one week. Here’s what they played…
“Everybody Wants to Rule the World” Tears for Fears
“Believer” Imagine Dragons
“Use Somebody” Kings of Leon
“Can’t Stop” Red Hot Chili Peppers
Parker started each day with stretches and readings and then turned things over to Nichelle for vocal and rhythm warmups. Each day we had a masterclass from one of the teachers at Guitar Shed and two rehearsals (one live and one with headphones on). The masterclasses included guitar (Brandon), bass (Sean), drums (Nico), keys (Chris) and a class focusing on musical genres (all counselors).
We made sure to take advantage of Coan Park across the street and would take our snacks across the street each day. There kids would play frisbee, play on the giant marimbas and soak in some vitamin-D. At the end of the week we had a pizza party and performance from both bands. Check out our facebook page for more pictures and some videos from the week. Next year we hope to have a camp for our younger students as well. Look forward to seeing you all next year, stay tuned!
