ADULT BAND WORKSHOPS

To enroll, students must be current with their annual $35 Member Fee. Three-pay options available.

PR E R EQU I S I T E S

RO C K & B LUES

Intermediate level bands require at least a year of previous band experience along with the ability to read chord charts and learn parts by ear.

Wide open to style, material may range from oldies to blues, alternative to Top 40— you name it!

BLU E S, SOU L & ROOTS Covers classic electric blues and its influences, including roots rock and roots country.

RO C K , S OUL AND R& B

SU M M E R OF LOV E

Includes material from classic artists like James Brown and Aretha Franklin.

Here’s your chance to fashion a set of songs to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love. Whether you were there or wished you could have been there, it’s never too late to wear some flowers in your hair!

M O D ER N RO CK & CO N T E MPO RARY BANDS You’ll perform material from a broad range of artists and bands with releases from the past ten to fifteen years.

SE E B ACK F OR SCH ED U LE

HALL & OATE S There are plenty of great tunes to choose from amongst their 34 chart hits— this workshop is gonna be seriously fun!!

Basic level bands do not require any previous band playing experience, though being able to learn parts by ear or with the help of a private instructor is best.

Guitar players should be able to move easily between open and barre chords. Drummers should be able to play steadily at fast and slow tempo, fill comfortably, and play both rock and blues grooves. Bass players should be able to play various grooves easily and lock with the drummer. Singers should be able to sing in tune and have a strong enough sense of time so that song entry points and phrasing can be consistently executed. Keyboard players should be able to form major and minor triads without notation.

PE R FO R MA NC E S Performances will be held June 26-29. Be sure to check out our Winter Quarter Band Showcases at the Boom Boom Room on April 3-6.

ADULT GUITAR CLASSES C L A S S ES FOR ACO U S T IC PL AYE RS FRO M S QUAR E- ONE TO S QUAR E 13! A great way for beginners to learn guitar and for everyone else to keep getting better. Our classes are small enough (3-7 students) to allow for personalized attention, and the social aspect of learning with others keeps you motivated and engaged. With many different levels, we probably have a class that’s right for you!

ACO U S T IC JAM C L A S S ES In a relaxed setting, learn tunes from folk, bluegrass, Celtic, and rock traditions, take solos and sing if you’d like, or just play rhythm with the group. Lots of instruction in how to improvise—open for players of acoustic guitar, banjo, mandolin, fiddle and ukulele.

SE E B ACK F OR SCH ED U LE

E LECTRIC GUI TAR CL ASSE S For intermediate players, Electric Rhythm Guitar focuses on timing, muting and accenting techniques, and overall strengthening of your right hand chops. Electric Lead Guitar is for those who want to develop soloing abilities in rock and blues styles. More experienced players can check out Blues/Jazz Guitar.

M U SIC THEORY F OR GU ITARIS T S Blue Bear offers a class for guitarists who want to learn music theory. If you’ve been playing for a while, you probably know bits and pieces of theory—this class will fill in the holes and apply it all in a practical way to the guitar fretboard.

ADU LT BA S S C L A S S The bass is really fun to play, and you can be band-ready faster than with any other instrument. So what’s holding you back? Our Square One Beginner class will have you groovin’ in no time!

ADULT U K U L EL E C L A SSES Beginning Ukulele is for the square-one beginner—you’ll learn to play songs in rock and folk styles and build a basic vocabulary of chords and simple strums. Level 2 and 3 classes will help you continue learning new songs and more complex strumming patterns.

ADULT SONGWRITING CLASSES For songwriters with a few songs under their belt, the Peter Case Songwriting Workshop is a great place for information and inspiration. Peter is a threetime Grammy-nominated, performing singer, songwriter, guitarist and producer who brings over 25 years of songwriting experience to his popular workshops. Songwriting for Beginners will teach the basics of how to write a piece of music: generating melodies, chord progressions, experimenting with song formats (such as verse, chorus, bridge), lyric schemes, and more.

ADULT VOICE CLASSES TECHNIQUE

ADULT VOICE CLASSES SINGING

For those with little or no singing experience, Blue Bear offers two very similar classes: Singing for People Who Can’t Sing and Learn to Sing: Group Singing for Beginners. You’ll learn the basics of how to produce a good tone, with lots of in-class exercises and songs, mostly singing as a group. Choose what best suits your schedule and location.

If you’re satisfied with your understanding of vocal technique, Blue Bear offers three classes where you can sing and get individualized coaching on your songs. Beginning Jazz Vocals with Lea Centauri introduces the art of singing lyrics: increase vocal range and confidence, learn vocal runs, build a repertoire and performance skills, find your soul note and color. In Jazz Vocal Performance, teacher Sharman Duran provides great piano accompaniment and the class culminates in a club performance with backing trio. In Janak Ramachandran’s Rock/Pop Vocal Performance you’ll receive technique and performance coaching in any style of music you’d like to sing, and perform at our Adult Rockcital at the end of the quarter.

Blue Bear also offers beginning voice classes for those with previous singing experience—choirs, bands, musical theater, etc.—but no formal voice instruction: Singing for People Who Can Sing and Vocal Technique with Raz Kennedy. Classes include group singing and some individual work. Raz’s class introduces the Complete Vocal Technique, of which Raz is the only certified teacher on the West Coast. Most of our technique classes offer higher levels for students who finish the introductory class. Singers with previous technique instruction may be able to join a higher level class, although some private instruction with the teacher may be recommended.

And remember, there are singing spots available in all of our Band Workshops (pages 2 and 3). There are no voice class prerequisites if you can sing in tune and have a good sense of timing.

Seminars for Guitar, Voice, Harmonica and Songwriting During the week before each quarter, Blue Bear offers one-night classes in a variety of topics of interest to singers, guitarists and perhaps to others as well. As a benefit for your annual Member Fee, you can take one Short Seminar for free anytime during the year—you’ll need to call the school to enroll. April seminars include Beginning Diatonic Harmonica, Beginning Chromatic Harmonica, Stage Two Harmonica, Voice!, Jamming with Others, Acoustic Jam Fundamentals, Chord-Scale Relationships, and more.

WHO AND WHAT ARE LITTLE BEARS? !

e

com tots e r he

ock to r

Simply put, Little Bears bobble, weave and dance to their own beat.

Little Bears instructors are working musicians who know how early childhood music education helps develop speech, hand-eye coordination and creativity. w

Little Bears offers classes to suit any kid and their accompanying parent or caregiver (we want to make this fun for everyone in the classroom). Music affects all people of all ages; that’s why we began teaching classes for children as young as four months.

WHY LITTLE BEARS? 1. Our teachers are actual musicians who love making music. 2. Singing helps children with vocal and speech development. 3. Dancing and instrument play help children develop motor skills. 4. Aural training helps children build listening and concentration skills. 5. Because kids and adults LOVE to rock. So let your little ones sing their hearts out, move to the music, and make some noise!

COMMUNITY PROGRAMS The benefit of a music education runs far and wide. It is proven that learning to play music boosts brain function, improves academic comprehension, teaches discipline, increases coordination, and provides a positive outlet (among other wonderful benefits). Blue Bear has made it a priority to ensure communities citywide have access to those benefits. Through partnerships with public and private schools and community centers, and with generous contributions from our donors, we have been able to grow our outreach efforts while arts funding is being cut. You can now find Blue Bear programming in the YMCA, Glide Memorial Church and in the SF Public Library. We hope to expand our program into YOUR neighborhood because everyone deserves to play!

Blue Bear’s community programs are not limited to music instruction (including songwriting, theory, and instrument lessons), but also include Digital Audio Production, a vital tool in today's digital world. With something for everyone, regardless of ability, we have found that Blue Bear's outreach programs are changing lives for the better. Here are our current partner sites: • St. Vincent DePaul Society • GLIDE Youth Ministries • Bayview Opera House • Bayview YMCA

• The Brandeis School of San Francisco • Marshall Elementary School • Flynn Elementary School

• Creative Arts Charter School • Rooftop School

• The Ranch Community Center • Bel Aire Elementary School

• The Mix at the SF Public Library

• Le Port Elementary School

• Tenderloin Recreation Center
