I graduaded in Russia as folk string instrumentalist at conservatory. At the child school i studied folk and guitar. Now I have 20 years of practice and concerts with guitars, piano, folk instruments. As I studied all vectors of music at conservatory, I have a main vision of music. Where it stars and in what direction it flies.
We can learn not only melodic patterns (at that point we can stop, of course, if you want to), but also tonality, rhythms of styles, the modes, the styles, and will do some exercises for improvisation sence.
