This spirited retrospective of the golden age of television and American cinema will explore the world of 20th century entertainment. In our first session, Television: The Fabulous 1950’s, we’ll ride a magic time machine back to January 28, 1956 to watch “News and Reviews”, an on-air magazine, built around a hilarious Honeymooners episode of the same date.
The origins of the clawhammer style banjo extend back as far as at least the 1800’s and came to the New World with the African slaves and their gourd instruments. The banjo style evolved and merged with other instruments, including the fiddle.
This course for beginners features basic reading, rhythm and keyboard techniques. By the end of the first lesson you will be able to play at least one song using chords (drones), even if you have never played before.
This course is a continuation of Jump Into Piano I, but having taken that course is not necessary if you have previously taken piano lessons. This level includes reading music in treble and bass clefs, advanced rhythmic study, counting and continued sight reading.
