It's that wonderful time of year again - Technique Olympics time!
This year, our annual Technique Olympics will be held on Saturday, October 25th at 1pm.
Students of all musical studies are welcome to this event. Guitar students will be having a special workshop held at the same time. At this event we will test your technical skills by focusing on all kinds of Scales, Chords, and Technical Warm-ups. This event also lets you experience a real music competition, and see what it feels like to win a medal - just like in the Olympics!
Come ready to compete, ready to cheer on fellow students, ready for snacks, and ready to mount the podium for the Gold, Silver, or Bronze!
Please RSVP by Saturday, October 18th.
