Hello Folk School Community,
We at Folk School of KDHX have been working on opportunities so that we can stay connected with you. Folk music is all about people, being connected to people, and playing music with people. Thankfully, we live in a time where we can gather virtually when we can’t gather in person. We plan to offer several classes online for the spring session. These classes will consist of live video conferences with instructors and students and will follow a 6-week structure. We’re still confirming the details of these classes, so please look for updates and registration announcements from us in the next week or so.
For those of you that have already signed up for the spring in-person session, we’ll be reaching out to you directly with options for your registration.
In the meantime, we’re excited to launch “Saturday Sessions”. Since we can’t gather to jam together for our monthly jams, we’ve asked the jam leaders to participate in a weekly online gathering where they will share techniques, tips, and tricks across a wide array of topics all pertaining to folk music and folk instruments. Instructors will be going live on Facebook each and every Saturday at noon for 30 minutes or so of free instruction with additional time for questions and answers. This is a great way to continue to learn and to connect with your Folk School community.
All you need to do to participate in Saturday Sessions is to go to the Folk School Facebook Page at noon on Saturdays and click on the live video.
We’ll kick off Saturday Sessions this week, Saturday, March 28. Folk School instructor, Andy Novara, will offer a session on “How to use arpeggio scales for mandoline and how to incorporate them into improvisation”. Make sure to join in at noon on Saturday and check out the Folk School Facebook page and website for future Saturday Session topics.
We look forward to “seeing” you soon,
-The Folk School of KDHX Team
