Guitarist Charlie Hunter, who's known for his ability to play leads, chords and basslines simultaneously on a custom-built seven-string guitar, will present a master class at 1:00 p.m. Saturday, June 23 at City Music and Education Center, 9299 Watson Rd. Hunter (pictured) will be in St. Louis that weekend to perform Friday and Saturday nights at Jazz at the Bistro.
The master class is open to vocalists and instrumentalists of all types, not just guitar players. Attendees are encouraged to bring their instruments, and Hunter will "address topics important to all musicians, including understanding and articulating rhythm and groove, use of counterpoint, and much more."
The cost of the Charlie Hunter master class is $25 per person. To register for the event, please call City Music director of education Brian Vaccaro at 314-961-8700 or email him at brian @ citymusicstl.com.
