 Acoustic Jam Session! 

Wednesdays 7 to 8 PM

Learn what to do at a jam session: how

to lead a song, how to follow other

musicians, and basic jam session etiquette.

Players of all acoustic instruments are welcome, plus electric bassists.

Each student will have chances to lead a song, and it is OK to pass

when it is your turn. The emphasis is on simple songs that other players can follow easily: three-chord songs (like Free Fallin' and Sloop John B.) and 12-bar blues (like Kansas City and Buckets of Rain). Open to adults and teens.

 Music Theory for Guitar and Ukulele Players 

 will be offered starting in September 2020. 

Theory class is offered once a year.

Guitarists and ukulele players (and other musicians) will learn about major and minor scales, key signatures, transposing, the Circle of Fifths, and what chords go with what scales. This is almost entirely a pencil-and-paper class, designed to help you "Think fast and play something musical" in any situation. Those who want to focus on playing guitar and reading music should consider taking the “Beginning” Folk/Pop Guitar Class.

 Intermediate Fingerstyle Ukulele 

 Please check back later, class will start in the fall of 2020 You can receive emails by   filling out the "Sign up for our newsletter" form below. 

 This class is for students who know the basic chords and have some experience with fingerpicking. Students will progress beyond playing patterns, to playing beautiful chord/melody arrangements.  

Note - Most guitars and ukuleles are difficult to play because the strings are too far from the frets.  I highly recommend that you take your guitar or ukulele to Eric Schoenberg Guitars in Tiburon, before the first class, and ask if you need a set-up. 

(The store is closed Sundays and Mondays. The best days for prompt service are Wednesday through Saturday.)
