Artichoke Community Music online class led by Zac Leger, $125 for six classes.

Although it may look like a toy or appear superficially similar to a recorder, the tinwhistle or pennywhistle is capable of all kinds of wonderful music and emotive depth and is highly versatile in its own right. Played by people of all ages, it is used by both amateurs and virtuoso professionals, alike. This class will start with the basics of the pennywhistle: scales, breath control, bedrock ornamentation and technique, slides and bends, tongue technique and more.

Artichoke Community Music online class led by Zac Leger, $80 for four classes.

Tunes for All Humans/All Instruments! The idea behind this class is very simple: give you two to three new tunes a week and enlarge the amount of tunes you can play and share with other musicians. Tunes will be broken down carefully and into bite-sized pieces to make them easy to pick up by ear. Then we will play the tunes slowly and relaxed, giving your muscle memory time to truly learn the tune! No more only half remembering a tune at a jam or wishing you could play that one you heard at the session but just did not have time to record or memorize!

Led by Maggie Lind (clawhammer banjo), Patrick Lind (guitar), and the return of Sophie Enloe (fiddle). Previous experience on your instrument is required. If you are playing in the fiddle or banjo sections, you should be fairly comfortable picking out melody notes by ear but we are working on developing this skill as well. Guitarists should be familiar with the following open position chords: A, C, D, E, F, G and able to play the bass note/after strum or “boom chuck” technique.

Cost for the 8 week session is sliding scale $160 – $125 per student. If you choose to skip the group zoom lessons you may have access to the online portion of the fall session for $80. Please email Maggie to register.

Pay what you can afford and email maggiebanjo (at) gmail.com if you have financial need. We offer scholarships and we want our classes to be accessible to all. We are happy for you to share one registration fee per household during this time, especially if you are financially impacted by the pandemic.

Artichoke Community Music online class led by Anne Weiss, $100 for six classes. Become a better player—all instruments/voices/levels. All you need to know is basic chords, or you can know a lot!

In this class we will take one new blues and one new folk song per week, listen carefully together and figure out what to work on and how to work on it to become a better player! You’ll be sent a nice, slow, clean recording of each song (by yours truly) plus chords and lyrics to work out your part, whether that is rhythm or bass guitar, voice, keyboards, guitar/horn/harmonica solos, etc. You will have the opportunity to share what you have come up with with the group (i.e., short “zoom” performances) if you choose, and get positive support and how to be an even better player/singer. This class will help you emerge prepared for the post-Covid music jam days to come!

Artichoke Community Music online class led by Martha Stone, $100 for six classes.

You‘re going to need a 5 string banjo, electronic tuner, capo, and music stand. No experience is necessary. We will use tablature at the beginning, but you do not need to read music to play clawhammer banjo.

Clawhammer refers to a rhythm which originates from a right-hand technique (aka Bum Ditty) and is the hardest part about playing this style of banjo. Once you get it (let’s say Day 1), the rest is much easier! Hopefully, your ultimate goal is to go to a jam and play clawhammer. We will be focusing on the skills you need to play with other musicians in a jam setting.

Martha is offering this class on-line. Details for participating in the class will be provided by the teacher before the class begins...

Artichoke Community Music online class led by Zac Leger, $125 for six classes.

Since the late 1960s a uniquely Irish version of the Greek bouzouki has become commonplace in traditional music far beyond Ireland and the British Isles. At the same time, interest in other larger mandolin-family instruments like the octave mandolin or the cittern (usually with 10 strings) has increased all over the world. This class is for any 8 string octave mandolin or bouzouki that can be tuned GDAD. We will explore chords and scales, counter-point and harmony, talk about the main modes used in traditional music and focus on how to utilize the unique multi-string tone and texture of the OM/Bouzouki to your best advantage. No previous background in the instrument required.

Although it may look like a toy or appear superficially similar to a recorder, the tinwhistle or pennywhistle is capable of all kinds of wonderful music and emotive depth and is highly versatile in its own right. Played by people of all ages, it is used by both amateurs and virtuoso professionals, alike. This class will start with the basics of the pennywhistle: scales, breath control, bedrock ornamentation and technique, slides and bends, tongue technique and more.

Artichoke Community Music online class led by Zac Leger, $80 for four classes.

Tunes for All Humans/All Instruments! The idea behind this class is very simple: give you two to three new tunes a week and enlarge the amount of tunes you can play and share with other musicians. Tunes will be broken down carefully and into bite-sized pieces to make them easy to pick up by ear. Then we will play the tunes slowly and relaxed, giving your muscle memory time to truly learn the tune! No more only half remembering a tune at a jam or wishing you could play that one you heard at the session but just did not have time to record or memorize!
