Folk Instrument Performance

This course is designed to provide basic, beginning-level instruction on banjo, Autoharp, and acoustic guitar. For banjo and Autoharp, no prior playing experience is necessary. Banjo instruction will focus on basic melodic picking through the claw-hammer style. Autoharp instruction will emphasize finger-thumb chord strumming and melodic picking. Guitar instruction will assume that the student has basic prior knowledge and flexibility with first position chording. For guitar, this course will focus on three-finger picking patterns to augment basic accompaniment. Students will practice these skills through informal, group performances of a common repertoire of folk songs that will be provided in ?chapbook? format. Important?students who wish to study guitar and Autoharp must provide their own instrument for the course. Banjos will be available for use during the course. CLASS LIMITED TO 12 PARTICIPANTS.
