The internship will take place at l'Académie de Musique de Malmedy : Ruelle des Capucins, 2 to B-4960 Malmedy
Monday to Friday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Morning - Guitar Lessons
During these interventions, we will discuss some points which seem to us essential for any improvising musician, whatever his instrument and the practiced style :
- Notions of form, sentence, rhythm, phrasing ... and how to integrate these parameters into an improvised musical discourse. (We have often noticed in students a better control of melody and harmony than of form and rhythm.),
- Improvisation in various forms: grids, improvisation, tempo and non-tempo, various metrics, ...
- What repertoire and why,
- Ear work and listening tips.
And also problems specific to the guitar :
Technique, real knowledge of the neck (melodically and harmonically), how to practice and explore his instrument.
This course is open to all musicians curious to expand their musical universe and their practice of improvisation.
An acoustic guitar or an electric guitar with amp (better, for sets), spare strings. A Real Book could also be useful.
