WOMEN'S GUITAR CLINIC
Next Clinic TBA
WITH KRIS SCHULZ
AT BLUEDOG GUITARS
Did you know that over 50% of all new guitar purchases are made by women? And women over 50 are one of the fastest growing segments in the guitar world?
All ages and skill level welcome at our Women's Guitar Clinic!
There's something for everyone - from absolute beginner to advanced - in this workshop.
I attended the previous Women's Guitar Clinic with Kris - and it is such a warm, encouraging and welcoming environment!
What you'll learn:- Playing in different styles- Right hand rhythm techniques- Chord and vocal accompaniment- Improvising in a group setting- Camp Fire Guitar Jamming- And much more!
$40 per person - Limited Spots available
Pre-register by calling Bluedog at 604-971-2893
And if you are wondering why men can't go to this particular workshop:
It's simply a more welcoming environment for women to learn in: men have dominated the guitar world since the parlour guitar was wrenched out of women's hands in the early 1900s.
As the female owner of a guitar shop, I am very aware of the disparity in the guitar world and experience it everyday with customers who ask to speak to someone who knows something about guitars...
The women-only workshops have come about as a response to inquiries from Bluedog's female customers and we are more than happy to help level the playing field.
If you're lucky enough to participate, you’ll quickly realize the all-woman atmosphere is very different than other learning environments.
A bonus is facilitating women guitarists to meet each other!
