Taught by Christopher McCarthy
Happening this October 2019!
If you have ever heard a popular song that you wish you could play on the cello, this is your chance to not only learn to how to play it, but learn to perform it and play every single part of the song by yourself.
This 4 class workshop teaches students how to hear a song, write out each part, and then play and perform the entire song using a loop pedal.
The class culminates in a final performance to showcase the work each student has done over the previous three classes.
Four 90-minute classes in October:
- Sunday, October 6th from 12:30-2pm
-Saturday, October 12th from 11:15-12:45pm
-Saturday, October 19th from 12:30-2pm
-Sunday, October 27th from 12:30-2pm (includes final performance)
Where: Temple Israel, Long Beach
There are only 7 spots available in order to ensure each student gets individual attention.
