Rhythmic Guitar and Singing Week
Michael Haidas, 29 Aug – 5 Sept 2020, €400, (Kissos Campus)
Imagine playing rhythmic guitar and singing with others in Greece.
A week long rhythmic guitar style workshop, for those with your own guitar and limited playing experience.
Over the duration of a week we will meet each morning to practice vocal and musical harmony as a group. In just one week you will become familiar with the basic rhythmic guitar open chords, improve your strumming technique and confidence in singing. We play classic folk rock songs along with Greek traditional and modern ballads.
Working with songs from various cultures and countries (from classic rock to Greek pop) we explore and play together for expression, creativity and performance.We develop group skills for cooperation, cohesiveness and unity.
Combine learning rhythmic guitar with entertainment in an authentic community environment
If you would like to immerse yourself in group formation as well as progressing your musical skills and repertoire. Come with your guitar and your soul. This week is for anyone with a basic level of guitar and singing.
I’ve always been a music lover. From my childhood years and teens I can remember singing with my guitar with friends and wanting to learn more and more about music—the greatest art form.
Music, singing and dancing are part of everyday life in Greece. It is not unusual for rhythmic guitar musicians to bring their instruments along to a restaurant and jam together with friends and those who love to sing and dance. Singing not only gathers people; it actually unites them. A song is the shortest distance between two people. Guitar, in particular, is the instrument designed for the human voice; this instrument accompanies me everywhere.
As a young adult performing rhythmic guitar professionally with various artists in concerts and open air events I gained experience that enabled me to communicate with small and large audiences. I have worked with all ages and all types of musicians and world music.
It would be my pleasure to accompany you on your musical journey.
