Intermediate Dobro Ensemble
This class is offered to any prior beginning or intermediate students*, and the emphasis will be on playing in a group and developing all the tasteful techniques that dobro players can bring to bear in a jam. As a student, you will pick, arrange and direct a small dobro ensemble to play the tune of your choice. This class is where the rubber hits the road. It will be fun and challenging, and will help to advance the student to the really fun part: making music with others ( Hint: good dobro players are always a welcome addition to a jam).

* New students may be considered after a consultation with the teacher, prior to the class.
