Hands-on Music-making Experiences
MARSHALL MUSIC is providing an electric guitar and electric bass for kids to explore, and KidzBeat has brought in two outstanding musicians to guide them as they get rockin’ and rollin’.
On the electric guitar all afternoon will be Bob Wilson, a self-taught musician (though with years of music theory studies), who performed professionally with a variety of bands alongside a career in the Air Force and Navy. He’s now retired to his native Lansing, where he enjoys composing and recording music in a home studio – and passing on his love of guitar to the next generation.
On the electric bass will be rock musician Joshua Wilson, son of Bob Wilson. He loves sharing how this instrument not only adds the “bass line” but solo riffs as well.
