With the evaluation sheets that are completed each year, the most common observation is the skill level difference of students in the same class. The instructors will valiantly try to handle the wide range but if a bit more time was taken to select the best class for you, this situation would be solved.
Choosing the correct level of instruction is so important to maximize your music camp experience. We will be glad to assist you if you need more information on the class outline or which class is the best fit for you. Please feel free to call Tracy Lalonde 306.370.7360. Remember, it is just as disruptive to others if you are too advanced in a beginner/intermediate class as it is to be a beginner in an advanced class.
You are relatively new to your instrument. You have been teaching yourself or learning from a book and are looking for a solid base to be established. You want to know about correct posture, how to hold the pick or bow, what strings to use, tips on tuning and intonation, etc. You need to be introduced to good study/practice habits, how to read music or tablature, and developing excellent technique.
You are progressing on your instrument. You are ready to start to play with other musicians and you can already play a few tunes from memory. You can play along with a CD if it is at medium speed. You are feeling that you need a booster to get you moving toward the next level. You have a solid grasp of all the basic techniques for your instrument and may be able to read tablature or music.
You are looking for fine tuning tips on how to improve your playing. You can jam with others, improvise fairly well on new tunes and are (or want to) play in an organized band. Your tab/music reading skills are great. You know some scales and how to use them in improvisation situations. Your speed is improving as you use your metronome. You have an arsenal of tunes you can play from memory. You play your instrument or practice almost every day.
