BSHS Guitar Circle

The Berkeley Springs High School Guitar Circle under the direction of Steve Grigsby meets every Monday after school at BlackCat Music Shop. The club also meets two times a month during sixth period at the school. The Guitar Circle is open to established student players and students wanting to learn how to play.

Steve shares his wealth of knowledge with the group and lets the guitarists choose songs to learn and share. BlackCat Music Cooperative is continuing to install new programs for our youth with generous support from the community, fundraisers, and provided grants.

 

 

“UKEAMANIA” IS HERE!!

The growing popularity of the ukulele is being felt worldwide, with sales that have tripled in the past few years and the number of players growing at an astounding rate! Why not! It’s easy and fun to play and small enough to take anywhere!

The BCMC Wednesday After School Uke Club continues to grow and is learning new songs weekly! As you can see, Ukes are now coming in all shapes, styles and sizes. This program provides students with a chance to learn and build self confidence.

Youth Uke Club Underway!

Under the direction of Mike Kligerman, the Youth Uke  Club  met and played for the first time on Wednesday, September 5th at 5:00 pm. This energetic team of youngsters will be meeting after school each Wednesday at 5:00 pm at BlackCat Music Shop. It was so much fun, that even some of the parents picked up a uke and played along! Mike just makes it that darn easy to learn.
