Learn How to Articulate the Music in Your Head with John


When: March 10th 2019, 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Where: Third Room Art Space; 707 NE Broadway St #205, Portland, OR 97232

**This is an Encore class however all students are welcome!**

The goal of the workshop is to establish a love for music and provide a set of basic tools to later explore an ongoing passion. No prior music experience required. Only an open mind!

In this class, you will learn how to articulate the music in your head, which will take the form of a musical idea, a short composition you’ll be able to take home. Imagine the creation of this composition as a music journey for which you’ll embark.

John will give you a set of essential tools for navigation and will be there to help you every step of the journey. Mistakes are not only accepted but a willingness to make them is required!

All sections of the workshop are hands on and our instruments are open for all to use.
