The Fullerton Museum Center will offer a special one-day workshop for intermediate guitarists and bassists on Saturday, August 20 from 1:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. Musicians are invited to come and learn about soloing, groove, song structure, and ensemble playing with music educator Kipp Kahlia . The cost of the workshop is $15 per person and is suitable for teens and adults.
With the guidance of performer and instructor Kipp Kahlia, participants will come up with a simple chord progression, develop different intertwining parts for musicians to play (like an orchestra), and once the groove has settled in, guitarists will go around the room and everyone will solo. This workshop is perfect for praise team musicians and other players who want to become better musicians in a fun, directed, interactive environment. Bring your own instrument and amplifier. A limited number of Fender acoustic guitars will be available for loan.
Kahlia is a graduate of the world-renown Musicians Institute in Hollywood, a magnet for professional musicians from around the world. After graduating from the guitar program, she went on to tour for more than a decade with international reggae artists on lead and rhythm guitar, bass, and vocals.
“When I began to learn to play the guitar, I found it frustrating because I had such a hard time finding teachers who would teach me what I wanted to know,” says Kahlia. “I wanted to be a real guitarist, but I eventually had to enroll in a first-class music school to get the kind of information and training I wanted. Now, I enjoy passing that information on to other “hungry” players. It’s great to watch their faces light up when they’ve gotten what they needed.”
Don’t miss out on this opportunity to take your playing to the next level! Reservations are required. The Fullerton Museum Center is located at 301 N. Pomona Avenue. For more information and to register, please call the museum at (714) 738-6545.
