Man, that was good.Thank you. All right, so basically, we're doing a lotof different stuff, from Alicia Keys, Stevie Wonder, Amy Winehouseâ€¦ And what's interestingabout this is not so much that we're just doing a bunch of cover songs, but it's howTori finds herself in the song, and actually
represents that art with her own touch, herown flair, but to be able to sing in a lot of different styles, because what this doesis to give you a lot of tools for your toolbox for singing.

Pathways Department Insight Music Classical Guitar Option
(( Silence )) â™ªâ™ª (( Music )) â™ªâ™ª (( Classical Guitar )) CSUN is really a great place to study guitar. Not only do we have enormously qualified and creative faculty, the curriculum here is set up to help you gain the tools for success in your career, whether it be in music or in any other field that you wish.
You're trained in history and literature and pedagogy. You learn sight reading skills on the instrument and your performance skills are finely tuned here as well. The discipline that you'll gain here in concert preparation is going to be of immesurable value to you in terms of your development for whether you go on to graduate school, or you enter into the workforce. I'm not going to say it's hard to get into, but you need to be prepared. We generally require that you play three pieces of a contrasting style, so like a Bach, some sort of traditionally classical or romantic, and a modern piece. And you have to exhibit that you can play to a certain ability and that you can read music very well.
The most important thing that someone can bring to the Classical Guitar program here is just an enthusiasm to learn, and a love of the instrument, and a good work ethic. In all university programs, but especially music, if you're serious about what you do, and if you love what you do, then the work doesn't seem like work anymore. What I hope that you get out of the program here is a really good ability to work with others and to communicate with others, not only in a coworker capacity, but also with how you relate to large groups of people. My words of advice for people entering into a music program:
be prepared for your audition and consult with the area coordinator that you're interested in. Getting your Bachelors should never be the end. That should actually be the beginning, always. Because I really do believe that in this transition as a university student you go from being someone who is in high school, living with their parents, to being someone who is about to become an adult, and that transition a lot of the times happens through university. If you can emerge out of that, and then realize that you're just at the beginning, and if you can take with you at that point, this sense of creativity, or this sense of art and aesthetics,
and how you should be learning with other people and communicating with other people, then I view my job as a success. â™ªâ™ª (( Music )) â™ªâ™ª.
Dominant 7th Guitar Chords Music Lessons How to Play Guitar Strumming Patterns
Okay, so we've learned plenty of chords andprogressions to get started for now, but the one thing that we didn't concentrate so muchon was the strumming. Strumming patterns, that is. We've only done, so far, we've onlybeen working on strumming down, starting on the bass string. Now let's start mixing that up a little bit,okayé When you hear a lot of guitarists play, they're not going to just strum all down strokes.They'll be up and down strums. Now we can think of our hand as a pendulum when we createthese patterns, and that'll be the best thing to do. So, our strumming hand is like this,so we can play, so just try playing, down
and up, and count your strums, your down strumsas ones, and your up strums as ands, or your down strums as numbers rather, you're counting.Watch. One and two and three and four and that can be all on the measure, so someonecan count off one, two, three, four. One and two and three and four and one and two andthree and four and one and two and three and four and. make sure that you're still, onyour up strums, you're still not touching the strings you don't want to. The stringsyou're not supposed to. Also, you can skip strums. You can do ghost strums. So watch,I go down, I go up without strumming, and then downup. One, two and three, four andone, two, and three, four and. Okay, this
can work in threefour as well. One, two,three, one, two, three, one, two and three, one, two, and three. So practice strums, upand down, and ghost strums.
