With Mathew Lydon
1st of October 10am-12pm- Northern Rivers Conservatorium, Concert Room.
This is a hands on workshop for students of all abilities. Complete beginners welcome! Come along and experience playing in a group setting and learn some techniques along the way. Some guitars will be available for use on the day. If you have your own- bring it along!
In the first part of the workshop we will take a brief look at some picking technique exercises that students may wish to include in their practice time.
The second part of the workshop will allow students to play through a piece of music as a group, with material that aims to cater for players of varying levels of experience. This will include time to learn thier part.
