Hagerstown Community College’s Center for Continuing Education is offering “Beginning Bluegrass Jamming,” on Mondays, from Aug. 3 through Aug. 31, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., on HCC’s main campus in the Career Programs Building, Room 213.
HCC instructor Ernie Bradley will teach the course. Each session will feature one or two traditional bluegrass songs in which emphasis is placed on learning lyrics and tune, developing a break for each instrument, and jam session etiquette. Students will break into groups of similar skill level from beginning to intermediate and, at the end of the class, the group will perform together. All bluegrass instruments are welcome, including guitars, banjos, mandolins, basses, dobros, and fiddles.
“Beginning Bluegrass Jamming” is a pay-as-you-go course where students can register for each class individually and can pay at the door as they arrive. Cost is $10 per session. Registrations will be taken at the door and registration forms must be completed in advance prior to coming to class.
