Adam Levy Workshop “String Theories”

Sunday, Feb 4th 1 - 3 pm

Acclaimed NYC-based guitarist and educator Adam Levy (Norah Jones, Tracy Chapman, Vulfpeck) returns to El Diablo for a workshop on Sunday February 4th from 1 - 3 pm!  The workshop explores the lessons contained within his new book ‘String Theories’ (written in collaboration with Ethan Sherman).  He’ll cover topics including tips for effective practice sessions, technique challenges that will level up your fretboard skills, and his approach to improvisation and composition.  Adam will also share his personal reflections from a life dedicated to music and the guitar.  Admission is $50 and tickets are available on our website.  All participants will receive a signed copy of “String Theories”. 

 Adam Levy has created a remarkable body of work over the past 30 years.  He rose to prominence playing for Tracy Chapman in the 90’s, including the song “Give Me One Reason,” which won Best Rock Song at the 1997 Grammy Awards.   He was then recruited for Norah Jones’ recording of “Come Away with Me,” her multi-platinum, multi-Grammy debut on Blue Note Records. He remained with Jones for nearly a decade, recording two additional albums and three DVDs, and touring the world as a member of her Handsome Band.  Today, Levy is not only a busy touring musician, but also a respected writer and educator, with numerous articles published for Guitar Player and Acoustic Guitar and teaching roles at NYU, the New School, University of Southern California, and Los Angeles College of Music. Adam also hosts the popular YouTube channel “Guitar Tips” as well as the “Guitar Tips Pro” series on Patreon.
