Gabrielle Johnson Music is hosting a fun School Holiday Guitar Workshop for beginner, intermediate and advanced guitarists on Thursday 14th January 2016.

Held in the convenient location of OLA Parish Centre in Maroubra, this special one-day only group workshop will run from 10am to 12.30pm.

It is facilitated by accomplished musician, vocalist and teacher Gabrielle Johnson and will focus on the specific needs of the students. Other facilitators will also be on hand, ensuring each child receives one-on-one advice and guidance.

During the morning children will learn how to read music and chord charts; interpret different styles of music using various strumming and picking techniques; learn the fundamentals of classical guitar; and how to listen to one's self to improve their sound. As part of the workshop experience, children will also complete Yousician iPAD challenges and participate in a short recital.

This is a great workshop for children who want to learn to play guitar or improve their skills in a fun and friendly atmosphere. There will also be an opportunity for children to buddy with another student so they can learn from each other. Adults are welcome to join in the fun also (students will be split into levels/ages).

Enrolment is now open for the School Holiday Guitar Workshop. Participation is priced $60 pp or $50 pp if you bring a friend or sibling.

To enrol, please complete the online form.

Children should bring along their guitar, music stand, guitar picks, presentation folder for handouts and an iPAD for the Yousician Guitar App (if possible - not compulsory).
