Power Up your Guitar Playing – Easy Guitar Tunings – for beginners and intermediates –

Were you lucky enough to get a new acoustic guitar for Christmas or do you need motivating to practice?

Bertie, Indie Pop Artist, multi-instrumentalist, songwriter and one of the amazing Yamaha Music London Ambassadors, will be teaching an introductory session on the Drop D tuning for your guitar.

Bertie will take you through a few fun and easy steps to familiarise you with the new tuning and then teach you a catchy finger picking pattern that you can use to show off your new skills and knowledge!

To get the most out of this session, attendees will need to know the basics of guitar playing.

Arrive early to avoid disappointment.

Love songwriting? Want to be a Pop Songwriter?
Creating a Catchy Chorus on Piano – 12pm and 3pm

How does a song get stuck in our head? From country music to hip hop, most of the catchy tunes you hear today began with an instrument and a few chords. If you can play basic piano and want to express yourself through song writing, this unmissable 30-minute session will teach you some simple chords to create an effective chorus.

Beth Keeping, talented solo singer, songwriter, and Yamaha Music London Ambassador, is often described as the UK’s answer to Taylor Swift! Beth draws influences from traditional country storytelling and colourful pop melodies to create a fresh sound that she calls “pop stories.” Her carefully crafted and dynamic pop stories about love, loss and nostalgia are epitomised by her latest EP I still think about that moment.

Beth will demonstrate 2-3 different popular chord progressions and where they have been used in popular music. Hopefully anyone attending this session will be able to go away with the tools to write a chorus for a song.

Arrive early to avoid disappointment.
