Bandplaying

Picture Band Playing“We’re not arrogant, we just believe we’re the best band in the world.”

Noel Gallagher (Musician)

Teacher: Francesco Cigna        Lessons: 4 /week

Rationale:

Love of music has a fantastic ability to unite people despite differences in age, gender, culture, and language. The social activity of playing music together with other people who share the same passion as you is one that can create great happiness and spiritual elevation when things work well, but also frustrations and anger when they don’t. Team spirit is therefore as important as music virtuosity.

Objectives:

To challenge yourself by playing your instrument (or singing) in a band together with others. To prepare yourself to go onstage in front of an audience. To improve your ability to analyze a song and prepare it for a band. And finally: To have fun while doing it, but also to learn to handle the problems that might arise within a group.

Content:

Playing different music styles, such as blues, pop, reggae, rock, etc.

Understanding basic music theory, such as notes, harmonies, rhythms, breaks, scales, keys, and song structure.

Understanding the basic functionality of a mixer, microphone, speaker, and effect machines.

Method:

A few classes will be based on theoretical musical instruction, but most will take place in the IPC Band Playing Room, where we will analyze songs and rehearse them.
