The Monday 6:15-7:00 EST sections of Virtual Band are fully booked, so we have opened up this new Virtual Band on Tuesdays from 6:00 to 6:45 PM EST. All Together Now will still be held Mondays 5:30 to 6:15 EST, and it will be recorded for anyone who can't attend. We will focus on three songs from Sgt. Pepper: Fixing a Hole, Getting Better, and With a Little Help From My Friends. We'll meet on Zoom in groups of five students led by Cameron Greider or Jack Petruzzelli to work on a group cover of each song. You'll be coached on musical skills to help you––guitar strumming rhythms, techniques for soloing or accompaniment, music theory, and more. Jack and Cameron will draw on their experience as recording and touring musicians and their study of the Beatles to help you deepen your insight into these songs. You'll also receive a GarageBand project with all the isolated tracks for the song, sheet music and tablature, and interactive videos demonstrating how to play each part on the original recording. Participants will record their parts at home and send them in to be mixed for the final product. We'll spend two weeks on each song, for a total of six weeks. We can help you with your technical setup if you are new to home recording. The atmosphere of the class is fun, supportive and non-judgmental. Suitable for all instruments and voices, and experience levels from beginner/intermediate to advanced.
