Grown-up Fun! You should PLAY too!

Always wanted to learn how to play the guitar or piano but didn’t know where to start?  Ready to take your singing talents out of the shower and share them with others? Look no further than Mr. John’s adult group classes – supportive and low-pressure environments where you can build your musical skills and get comfortable performing for and playing with others.  Designed for people who want to make music as a hobby, rather than a profession, and want to have fun doing it! Mister John’s adult classes are BYOB and you get to help choose the songs you work on from your favorite popular artists. Let loose your inhibitions, pick up your instruments and your music folder, and let’s jam!  Currently, the studio offers group classes in guitar and piano with ukulele, percussion, and choir coming soon.

ADULT CHOIR – ALL LEVELS

🌷
SPRING 1 SESSION – 2/26-4/28/2024
(No Classes during Spring Break 4/1-4/7)

REGISTRATION OPENS 2/12!

If you’re terrified of singing in public or if you long for the days when you were in a college acapella group, Mister John wants you in this class.  We’ll work on pitch recognition, breathing techniques, and part singing through a selection of diverse song stylings based on what our classmates want to sing.  Singers will not only learn musical concepts through vocal training but also become more confident in what makes their individual voices and vocal tones special and valuable as part of a musical community.

BEGINNING GUITAR
A fun laid-back place to learn a new instrument – this class is for the grown-up who has always wanted to accompany him/herself on the guitar. “Let’s start at the very beginning… a very good place to start…”  Bring your guitar, a beverage of your choosing, and your best singing voice. You’ll learn some chords, a few strumming patterns, and a lick or two. You could be the next Pat Benatar! What have you got to lose?! Join the party!

ADVANCED BEGINNER GUITAR
If you’ve already taken a couple sessions of Beginning Guitar, or if you have a knowledge of open chords and a smattering of strumming patterns in the your repertoire, this class is for you. Prepare yourself to play songs with more than four chords, get ready to have your mind blown with major 7 chords, just wait until you learn how to walk up and down from one chord to the next. By the end of this class, you should feel great about playing a seemingly complicated song for your loved ones.  It’s a perfect combination of chill and crazy, y’all!

BEGINNING UKULELE
Wanna go to Hawaii? Well, unfortunately, we can’t take you there, it’s just too expensive. But we CAN teach you how to play the ukulele like a pro so that when you eventually get there, you’re ready to join the fun! You’ll learn chords, strumming techniques, some traditional Hawaiian music and all sorts of acoustic rock covers. Who doesn’t like Guns N’ Roses on the soft, dulcet tones of the ukulele? Aloha!

BEGINNING PIANO
“I’ve always wanted to play the piano.”  Well, what are you waiting for?!? Now’s the time! In this class, no more than six students will work on beginning piano skills and musical theory concepts to be able to play as a part of a band. Through a combination of group instruction and one-on-one time, students will learn chords and melodic lines designed to get them playing and singing full songs from the very first moment. Traditional methods are employed as well as ear-training and improvisation, so students should be prepared to jump from looking to listening to following their feelings.
