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!

Blues harp from the heart -- Playing the harmonica really does strengthen your abs and improve your breathing. Probably the only instrument you play by inhaling, it is magical and mystical. Also, it’s one of the most affordable, portable and intimate of instruments, a friend to carry wherever you go. And it is a key element of America’s fabulous musical tradition, the blues. But it ain’t easy! All levels welcome, including beginners, as long as you are willing (and happy) to practice daily.

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.

Every Saturday evening, we open the room at five thirty (new time!) and start singing by 6:00. Come when you can, stay as long as you like. All kinds of music and all kinds of people are welcome. We‘ll follow the song circle practice of letting each person sing a song in turn and it is perfectly fine to listen. Get a computer with a camera and mic, light up your face, and point your browser to https://us02web.zoom.us/j/87176553766. This is a new link and replaces the link we have used in the past.

See Song Circles under the event menu for logistics information, and for information about how to connect by phone.

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.
