Guitar and Effects in Modern Music

- OUTLINE -

Students will enjoy a program of music with a mix of pop, rock, jazz, and see how the guitar and its effects would greatly affect the feel and vibe of a song. This new and improved programme features a live band performance to demonstrate the guitar effects in a musical setting.

Outline:
- Introduction to the Guitar.
- Explanation of the various effects available and how to combine them in different ways.
- Demonstration of the different playing techniques of the instrument and how different approaches could alter the sound and feel of the guitar drastically.
- Live band performances with explanations in between songs.

- LEARNING OBJECTIVES -

- To educate students about and encourage in students an appreciation of the role of guitar and the many effects employed in modern music.
- To stimulate creativity in students by demonstrating how one particular effect or approach might change the entire song or entire generation of songs.
- To demonstrate different ways of approaching the guitar (tapping, sliding, strumming and plucking)
- To demonstrate that the key factor is one’s creativity and not the tools
