Tune Teaching SessionsIn our tune teaching session, the leader spends the first hour teaching a common session tune phrase by phrase. To facilitate learning, we distribute a CD to everyone who comes to session with recordings of all the tunes for the year. We also provide sheet music to help people who are more visually oriented, but our goal is to play without sheet music and, if possible, learn by ear. In the second hour of the session, we go around the room letting people pick tunes to play. We will play as slowly as desired, and this is a great time to practice tunes that you are still mastering. The teaching session is open to anyone with basic mastery of their instrument -- including children.
Our tune teaching sessions meet the first Saturday of every month (except during the summer) from 10-12 AM at Green Acres School.
The planned tunes for 2010-2011 are:
