IF YOUR KID SAYS, “I WANNA BE A GUITAR GOD!” THEY CAN SEE AND HEAR WHAT IT’S REALLY LIKE FROM: ANGUS CLARK
Guitarist for: Trans-Siberian Orchestra, Joe Lynn Turner,
Rock of Ages, Kitaro, and others
Many young musicians dream of becoming rock stars, but what does it really take to make it? Angus Clark, one of today’s most diverse and acclaimed guitarists having racked up credits on Grammy-nominated and Platinum- and Gold-selling albums for 25 years, will demonstrate techniques and skills imperative to success and share the benefit of his extensive experience in the music industry at the School of Rock in Clark on Wednesday, March 14, at 6 p.m.
“CPR for Musicians” (with the primary emphasis on guitar) is a 2 ½ hour intensive clinic with focus on: Chops + Consistency; Preparation + Performance; and Repertoire + Relationships. Each CPR topic will be addressed - CHOPS: the importance of focusing on fundamentals (playing), and CONSISTENCY: being a trusted resource to others (career), PREPARATION: building good practice habits, etc.
Included will be a Q&A session of lively and thought-provoking questions from aspiring rock stars which Angus will field. He will be able to inspire the students as well as ensure they understand that fame comes from a lot of hard work and playing in obscure places. This will help portray his dedication that has allowed him to perform before the lights of Broadway, Carnegie Hall and the huge arenas where Angus has enjoyed the spotlight.
Five fortunate guitar players will have the opportunity to play with Angus. There is room for only 80 rockers. All School of Rock students receive free admission, general public is $10.
