Jaminals – Fall Session

We are very excited to announce the return of Jaminals in the fall! Our teachers are on a first name basis here at the Shed, but when I am teaching little guys they refer to me as Mr. Parker.

Before opening Guitar Shed, I taught hundreds of preschoolers music in a school setting. I have always wanted to have my very own early childhood music class and Jaminals is finally here! Jaminals is a group early childhood music class for ages 2-4.

The classes will focus on movement, ear training, instrument exposure and fun with Mr. Parker! This is not a mommy+me class in that adults are not required to be in our “circle.” However, a parent is required to be at the Shed for the duration of the class.

Classes are from 9:30-10:00 am on the following dates and you can register here. Just select “Jaminals” in the instrument field. Classes are pro-rated and it is not mandatory to attend every class.

Fall Student Showcase Recap

Great job in the Fall Student Showcase at The Pullman everyone! At Guitar Shed there is a performance opportunity for each season. We have a Spring and Fall Student Showcase as well as a Summer and Winter Recital. Keep an eye out for more performance opportunities in addition to these soon!

At our Fall Student Showcase this past weekend we had some first time performers as well as seasoned veterans. All of our Guitar Shedders played beautifully! Thank you for having the courage to perform in front of a live audience. I encourage you to treat each performance as a unique learning opportunity and treat them objectively. It takes some effort to be able to objectively view both the positive and negative aspects of your performance. Make sure to use all aspects of your playing as a tool to keep your ego in check.

There is much to be learned from the performance process and a variety of internal and external factors can affect your desired outcome. By performing regularly, you are able to diminish performance anxiety and grow exponentially as a musician.

Keep Shedding!
