  Playing By Heart with Gail MacDonald      Thursdays: Nov 9,16, 30 & Dec 7  11:30-12:45
– 4 weeks, $65.00.  Learn to experience more musical freedom. Playing by Heart is understanding chords & chord progressions, and listening to the music with your ears and your body. We’ll be learning how to listen for the chord changes, some common chord progressions, how to know what chords to use in the key, and playing in a variety of keys. No music stands required!   It is helpful if you know at least 12 chords and are comfortable changing chords. We will not be teaching chords in class.
