The Arts Music Store Workshops at The Aurora Winter Blues Festival 2017

Workshop - Instrumental 12 Bar Blues
Kenzie MacMillan - Patient, approachable, knowledgeable
and all round fantastic teacher.

The 12 bar blues is one of the most common chord progressions in popular music. Working together we will take a practical, hands-on approach to learning different variations of the common 12-bar Form and exploring how to use them effectively. By beginning with only three chords, and steadily introducing more complex patterns, this is an opportunity for musicians of all levels to expand their “tool box”, meet great people and have some real fun.

Open to guitarists, bassists, vocalists, keyboardists and hand percussionists alike!

Workshop - Songwriting: Melody
Laura Wilson - Whip smart, talented, convivial and all round fantastic teacher.

This is a fantastic workshop for songwriters of all experience levels and genres.

Come and learn how to create melodies that support your lyrics, and rhythm to create resonance within your words. You will have the opportunity to perform your original song and receive feedback from Laura and the other participants within a really supportive and encouraging setting.
