Guitar Ensemble - Commencing Term 4
Modern arrangements for guitar experimenting with chords, guitar percussion, bass lines, melodies, and some improvisation.
The group will start out with a simple blues melody to learn group dynamics, and a three chord pop song with accompanying melody. Depending on the groups interests and strengths songs can be chosen from the Top 40 hits or even movie soundtracks e.g. Michael Jackson to Ed Sheeran or the Star Wars Theme or a Disney Medley.
Also experimenting with creating ambient textures, chords and melodies with the group, by listening to each other and improvising. Understanding group dynamics by listening while playing will be a big focus to ensure a beautiful sounding performance at the end of the term.
Work the group's strengths and interests while also making sure that everyone learns new skills and strengthen the skills already learnt.
