Ok people, let's talk about a REAL education in music. I attended the Cherry Hill School of Rock Summer Open House on Saturday and seen an awesome rock n roll show put on by the most creative kids I've seen in a long while. I believe all kids have this creativity inside them, but it takes talented people to bring it out and the instructors at the Cherry Hill School of Rock have that talent. I don't know where else kids as young as 8 yrs old can go and get to a level of playing music collectively in a band setting in so little time. Also, the older kids, the C team are so good I can see them expressing themselves in a CD or video very soon. The School of Rock Cherry Hill is a top notch music school for kids an adults and in my opinion from what i've seen on Saturday they have the passion and enthusiasm to take anyone and turn them into a musician and performing on stage in front of a crowd and fulfilling their dreams. I simply loved the show and the whole family atmosphere. It was a FANTASTIC EXPERIENCE!!!!
CLAY STILES' TIP OF THE WEEK ENCORE Ok guys, if you checked out my last post about bass effects then you know that it was essentially urging you to experiment and explore new sounds for your instrument. With that being said, I can't stress enough that having a grasp on the basic techniques and functionality of the Bass guitar will only make use of effects that much more interesting.
CHARLIE STROUP'S TIP OF THE WEEK ENCORE If you've been following along this week, you should by now have practiced about 8 hours. Ideally, about 6 of those hours were spent grinding away at a new mode or getting the feel of an odd time signature.
CHARLIE STROUP'S TIP OF THE WEEK
While expanding into different genres is important, there are other expansions you can make to broaden your musical horizons as well. For one thing, don't get stuck on your own instrument. Young musicians, especially, tend to get hyper-focused into their one musical area.
