This is an in-person class that will also be livestreamed. The recording will be made available for those who need to miss a session.

Beginning in 1954 when Cleveland deejay Alan Freed began using the term “rock ‘n’ roll” to describe the rhythm & blues records he played, 1954 is regarded as the year the genre was born. It’s the year Elvis Presley released his debut recording, Bill Haley & His Comets released “Rock Around The Clock”, doo-wop vocal group The Chords release “Sh-Boom” and Leo Fender introduced the world to the Stratocaster electric guitar. We’ll look at these and other significant musical events that year.
