American folk and blues: The role of music in freedom of express
- America House (map)
Are you curious about why American music sounds the way it does? Join Jake Dickson to learn about the importance of the music of the common American and how it is used to communicate important attitudes and experiences. He will also go over basic song structure and finish with a few American sing-a-long songs.
Jake Dickson comes from a family that loves music. From an early age, he developed a love for bluegrass and rock music and played with a variety of bands. After learning the violin, he learned to play the mandolin, guitar, and banjo. In college, he led the university folk music band for three semesters and graduated with a minor in folk music/audio production. Music is not his current profession but he still loves to play and share with his friends.

The High Anti-Corruption Court of Ukraine, the Independent Investigative Body and the Independent Prosecutorial Body are the three institutions that have been created to combat high-level corruption in Ukraine. We’ve decided to invite representatives from each of these institutions as well as the independent media to discuss these questions and other work they do in their areas.
This week we aren't just a talking about corruption, we are actively making solutions to it. In the Advancing English Proficiency program we're acting out how we can respond to and avoid corruption and be transparent.
In this week's WE@AH speaking club, our theme is how we can respond to corruption and sharing how corruption has affected our lives (and how we can overcome those negative effects).
We would like to welcome all beginner-level English learners for a general English course at America House.
