Hornby Island Blues desires to keep student/ instructor ratios small in order to enrich the teaching learning experience

Choosing workshops:
Note: The Hornby Island Workshop classes are not for someone with limited or no playing experience who just wants to learn to play songs. To benefit from our courses, you must have some playing experience and some fundamental knowledge of music. You should be able to understand and count rhythms, have some knowledge of basic scales, understand simple intervals and turnarounds, and at least have heard of 8-bar and 12-bar chord progressions. For guitarists understanding open/alternate tunings would also be an asset. Without such experience and knowledge, you may struggle in some courses and not take away the maximum benefits. Please read instructors’ course descriptions carefully.

Each student will choose one major class, taken from 9:30 – 12 noon daily, and one minor class for each afternoon, from 1:30pm - 3:30pm.

We ask that you have a second choice prepared in the event that your first choice class is already full.

Workshop descriptions are subject to change. We'll keep this website up to date as changes occur.
