LARNED — The Larned Music Club features Curtis Oberle at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 11, at the Jordaan Club Room, on 502 Broadway St., Larned.

This lecture presentation, “It’s Not Theoretical - The Nuts and Bolts of Music,” explores the elements that musicians and composers use to make music. With both live performance and prerecorded examples, Oberle will demonstrate some of the simple ideas that combine to create a world of musical expression. 

Oberle has played the guitar for almost half a century, beginning as a self-taught musician in his hometown of Claflin. He studied at Berklee College of Music, Boston, with a degree in guitar performance, and received a master’s degree in music from Kansas State University. Additionally, he studied privately with teachers, such as the late Barry Harris, jazz and bebop musician, and in master classes with classical guitar virtuoso Christopher Parkening.

As a veteran of professional performance in a variety of settings, Oberle taught guitar playing through private lessons and at college level, including KSU and Park University. He continues to share what he has learned with his current students, young and not so young, in person and online.

The Larned Music Club welcomes the community to this free program.
