What is Fusio?

Fusio is about playing in a band. It’s taught by guitarist, Bill Parsons. There are two types of bands: All Instruments: Fusio Jam Session and Fusio Guitar Group. In both, Bill teaches the art of ensemble playing, i.e. how to play in a band, or group. By fusing the musical personalities (and abilities) of the players, each group discovers its unique way of performing songs, this is Fusio. Fusio Guitar Group classes are 45-minutes each, scheduled between 12:00-2:00 pm on Sundays. 

Exact times, dates, and class placements will be decided by the instructor one week before the class start date. New students will be asked to submit a short demo to help the instructor determine playing level and optimal ensemble mix.
