Family Truckster Lessons

Family Truckster Lessons allow three or more students of varying ages, instruments, and abilities to collaborate and learn alongside each other.

Truckster Lessons are 60 minutes in length, shared between the students. Most Family Truckster Lessons have been comprised of, well, families.  However, we’ve seen friends share time, too! Truckster Lessons are not a static arrangement; they are tailored to suit the interests and abilities of each group, and grow and change as the dynamic evolves.

Family Truckster Lessons can alternate between group collaboration and individual instruction observation, or be side-by-side learning from start to finish.  We can accommodate groups of 3 to 5 people, of all ages and abilities.  Truckster groups tend to progress most quickly when participants select similar instruments (say, violin and mandolin or guitar and ukulele), but we can squeeze percussion in about anywhere! Do you have a family member who wants to join your Truckster group but doesn’t play one of our instruments of emphasis?  Not a problem!  These musicians are welcome to sign up and participate in rhythm exercises, piano and percussion modules, open mic performance time, and group jam sessions.  Stringed instruments like cello, bass, dulcimer, etc. are the easiest to add into the mix, but hit us up to see if your instrument would be a good fit.

Both Angie and Marcus will both have a presence at lessons to provide guidance and information. They love to play as a mini backing band, throwing down some guitar and percussion to help turn a student’s piece of music into a real song.

Not sure if your instruments will be a good fit?
