"Thinking Outside the Box" - Fretboard Theory Guitar Workshop With Mike Ridenour.  Saturday, April 18, 2015 From
9:00 AM - 12:00 Noon 

This workshop is for intermediate to advanced guitar players and will cover fretboard navigation utilizing the five pentatonic shapes. Extended and "sweepable" arpeggios as well as diatonic scales/modes will be placed within each of these pentatonic shapes for greater freedom in playing up and down the neck (getting outside individual pentatonic shapes and boxes) which allows for expanded improvisational options. The workshop will be held on Saturday, April 18, 2015 from 9:00 AM -- 12:00 Noon. Workshop is taught by Mike Ridenour (M.M. Guitar Performance), Workshop materials are included in the $25.00 tuition price.  Please register by clicking HERE.

We LOVE customer referrals because we get to work with more great people just like our students and their family.  That's why we created our "Refer A Friend" program to say "thank you" for our student's continued loyalty and support.  Every time a current student refers a perspective student (non-immediate family member) that registers for private lessons then the current student will receive a $25.00 retail gift card of their choice.   Click HERE for more details and refer your friends to the Music Academy of WNC!
