Golden Age Offers Clinic with John Carlini

The following clinic will feature guitar master John Carlini and will feature bass accompaniment. The topic will be “playing with a bassist” and will cover arranging for and playing with bass accompaniment.
   John is a veteran guitarist and composer whose portfolio is a fascinating journey from classical to Broadway to jazz to bluegrass. An often-cited founding member of the seventies’ West Coast “New Acoustic Music” scene, he is also an acclaimed arranger, orchestrator, and conductor.

   Mr. Carlini is also a graduate of the famed Berklee College of Music in Boston, whose renowned jazz program had enticed him since high school. It was at Berklee that John gained the technical knowledge to make music his life’s choice, graduating with a major in arranging and composition with guitar as his main instrument.
   This one will be held at Wed. Nov. at 7:30 PM and last for about 90 minutes. The cost is $35 at the door

All major credit cards will be accepted as payment.

The Golden Age Clinic/Workshop Series is About to Lift Off!

The Golden Age Clinic/Workshop Series is About to Lift Off!

Hi Everybody – I need to make sure all my clients are aware of our upcoming clinic series.

   The first one is going to feature the inimitable master of the jazz guitar, Jack Wilkins
  The Jack Wilkins workshop went off without a hitch and Jack was spectacular! We had great feedback from all in attendance. Jack was funny, charming and played like the monster guitarist we all know he is. He played mostly solo, but was joined by my friend Marc Sica for a couple of duets that were awe inspiring. There were great stories about his experiences playing with and listening to some of the all time giants of jazz as well as discussions about playing style, practice habits, listening habits, playing theory and technique. I think it’s fair to say that all in attendance came away being more both entertained and informed.  A great time was had by all!

Golden Age now offers in-house repairs by the magnificent Pete Becker!

We repair all stringed instruments. Pete’s hours at GA are Wed. through Saturday, but please call first to check his availability before driving over.
