ROTORUA BLUES FESTIVAL
YOUTH BLUES GUITAR SEMINAR AND WORKSHOP

In conjunction with the ROTORUA DISTRICT COUNCIL, BOP Blues Club invites Bay of Plenty intermediate and secondary music teachers to nominate students to attend the Friday seminar:

FRIDAY 29 May       1.15pm – 2.45pm             Rotorua Intermediate Drama Room
                                                                                Malfroy Rd Rotorua

Australian based Andy Phillips will present a free youth seminar for intermediate and senior pupils; talking about touring throughout Australia , demonstrating both blues and rock licks & turnarounds, improvising and extending the pentatonic scale and finally, answering questions. The clinic is free to students. Please contact your music teacher for further details.

To follow on from the seminar, a hands-on workshop will be held on the following Sunday. Teachers are asked to nominate one (or more) of their talented students who they feel would benefit from attending this workshop. Numbers are limited.

SUNDAY 31 May    10.30am – 12.00pm         Novotel Rotorua Lakeside

Blues Artist from Australia Isaiah B Brunt and Music Teacher Mr Rob Powley (Rotorua) will lead a ‘hands on’ advanced workshop for students, nominated by their tutor. They will give an introductory talk/performance on the history of the blues and the various forms of music that have been spawned by it. They will then lead the students through a workshop, using a basic 12 bar blues arrangement, demonstrating how we all work together to benefit the song. The workshop is free to students. They will need to bring an acoustic guitar.

As there are only a small number of spaces available, booking is essential.
