Biographie

Lluís Gómez enseigne tout type de techniques, depuis les bases jusqu'aux techniques les plus avancées et modernes, et s'adresse à des étudiants de tous niveaux. Il apprend non seulement à jouer dans les styles Scruggs, mélodique et single-string, mais aussi à faire des backups et à jouer en groupe. Ses cours comprennent de la théorie musicale, de l'apprentissage de répertoire et une initiation au réglage du banjo. Lluís apprend comment utiliser le banjo dans différents styles musicaux : pop, irlandais, jazz, swing, manouche et blues. Vous apprendrez des fiddle tunes, des notions de composition, des accords de jazz, à jouer dans différentes tonalités, à utiliser les substitutions, à travailler d'oreille, ainsi que les gammes jouées dans le style mélodique et en single string. Mais une des choses principales que Lluís vous apprend, c'est de prendre du plaisir en jouant du banjo. C'est le plus important. N'ayez aucune crainte au sujet de votre niveau, il s'agit juste de jouer et de se faire plaisir avec ses amis en jams ou en groupe.

Programme

La Routine quotidienne

Pour moi, le premier jour, le premier contact est essentiel. Je me présente, et demande à chacun des élèves son niveau et surtout, chose très importante, ce qu’ils désirent apprendre. Puis, en fonction de leurs attentes, je prépare le planning de la semaine.
J’aime parler et le discours pédagogique mais, plus encore, j’aime jouer. Enfin de compte, il y a un moment pour tout.

1. Un peu de théorie
2. Enseigner une phrase musicale (lick)
3. Une chanson ou un thème, de manière quotidienne (Ne vous inquiétez pas !). J’enseigne les accords, on apprend la mélodie note par note, tout dépend du niveau de chacun. Certains apprendront les accords, d’autres la mélodie, et les plus avancés, qui ont intégrés les accords et la mélodie feront les solos
4. Une jam session quotidienne est très importante. Il est assez difficile pour les gens qui commencent de s’intégrer à une jam. La première fois, certains ne s’écoutent pas, d’autres jouent trop fort, ou trop rapidement… Pas d’inquiétude, chaque jour sera la possibilité de se sentir plus à l’aise.
5. Chaque jour, chacun des élèves jouera un thème pour le reste de la classe, seul ou accompagné. Pas d’inquiétude, rien n“est obligatoire !
6. 30 minutes one on one private lesson. Les autres élèvent pourront assister aux classes individuelles

Enfin, j’aime mélanger les niveaux, des gens qui débutent, d’autres plus avancés ; il est très intéressant de voir ce qui en découle, comment ces derniers aident les autres, et comment les débutants s’enrichissent de cette expérience.
Les classes se dérouleront principalement en anglais, un peu en français, mais rassurez-vous, certains m’aideront à me faire comprendre ! Ne vous inquiétez pas, nous joueront sans cesse !

IL N“ Y A PLUS DE CHAMBRE A UN LIT…. Veuillez Choisir une autre option. MERCI

Biography

Lluís Gómez is one of the few musicians dedicated completely to this magnificent instrument. For years he has travelled to the United States to learn it’s secrets from the most eminent banjo players in bluegrass and folk music.  He composes his own music, runs workshops on the banjo and publishes articles in specialized magazines in the USA. In Spain his first teachers were Sedo García and Ricky Araiza, while in France he studied with Jean Marie Redon. He has received classes from the American banjo players Bill Keith, Tony Trischka, Pete Wernick, Noam Pikelny and Jayme Stone.
He has shared the stage with Bill Keith, Tony Trischka,, Jayme Stone, Alex Hargreaves, Mike Barnett, Jean Marie Redon, Tom Nechville, the Carter Brothers, and Gerry O'Connor amongst others. Throughout his musical career he has been in many bands playing folk, bluegrass and celtic music and recently he has played in groups which play manouche or gypsy-jazz. He is the musical director of the Al Ras Acoustic Music Festival, which is the only one of its kind in our country. This festival has created much interest in bluegrass and old-time music in Spain.
Lluís is also the author with Toni Giménez of Manual de iniciación al banjo de cinco cuerdas, the very first banjo book written in Spanish and Catalan.

Banjo WorkshopVirton 2017

For all levels of 5 string banjo players, Lluís Gómez teaches everything from beginning techniques to advanced and modern ideas.  Skills taught include Scruggs, melodic and single-string styles, backup and playing with others, music theory, repertoire and banjo maintenance and setup.  He also teaches use of the banjo in many different musical genres:  pop, Irish, jazz, swing, Manouche and blues. Students can learn about playing in different keys, fiddle tunes, composition, jazz chords, substitutions, ear training,  and melodic and single string scales.   One of the very important thing that Lluís teaches is to have fun with the banjo. This is really important.  Don't worry about your level, play and have fun with your friends in jams and bands.


The Routine Day

The first meeting day is very important. That’s when I introduce myself and ask the students about their level and WHAT THEY WANT TO LEARN. From that meeting, I make a weekly plan that reflects the interests of the students.
I like to talk and explain things but I prefer to play, so we'll have time for everything.


There are things that every day we'll try to do.


1. A little bit of theory and new stuff.
2. A day lick
3. A tune day (don't worry!! I'll introduce a tune, not necessary to learn note for note. We'll learn the chords and it will be the jam tune of the day, learn the chords for beginners, a little bit of the melody for intermediate, and a different break for advanced. This tune can be a request of a student)
4. A jam day tune- Jams are very important and I know that for beginners sometimes the jams are a little bit difficult. So we'll jam at the class every day over the tunes we'll choose.
5. Perfomance stage at class- Every day one of the students will play something for us, alone or with me, not obligatory.
6. 30 minutes one on one (a private lesson that the rest of the class can listen or take a break)


Also one of the things I really like is to mix beginners with advanced players. Its fun and really interesting. The beginner has to increase his level. And the advanced has to think about the beginner, help him and try to play in the same level.

The lessons will be mostly in English and a little bit of French. But for sure I'll have the help of somebody to translate. Don't worry, we'll talk just a little bit. WE'LL PLAY A LOT!
