Aurora Winter Blues Festival FREE WORKSHOPS


FREE Blues Form Workshop

Saturday February 10 10:30 am
Aurora Public Library


Teacher Extraordinaire Kenzie MacMillan will be teaching you on the ways major and minor blues licks can be played over either major or minor chords in order to get more mileage from the same patterns. We will begin by learning some basic blues accompaniment (depending on instrument) and graduate to some simple lead licks/melodies to play over top. All ages, instruments*, and experience levels are welcome. Come on out and learn something new, meet some great folks and have some fun.

*In an effort to keep volume levels reasonable there won't be a drum kit, but hand percussion can be arranged for in advance. We ask that brass/woodwind players have at least one year of experience




FREE Beginner Guitar Workshop

Saturday February 10 10:30 am
Aurora Public Library
