Vancouver’s Movable Music School is an ongoing series of weekly music lessons, at levels from beginner to advanced, organized by Rosemary Campbell. Classes are held in people’s homes (thus the name), and typically run for six weeks. At the end of each term, folks from all the different classes meet for a potluck and performance. The vibe is supportive as people of all levels display their new-found talents. I attended after my girlfriend Christine and I took the “Beginning Guitar” course. It was great fun and, as you can see here, we weren’t half bad after only six lessons!
I was especially wowed by the Songwriting Level 2 course graduates, all of whose material impressed with their wordcraft and melodies. Wow!
Thanks to Alex Garcia for the footage of me and the Beginning Guitar class.
