Music Development Club

Music-Development Club

This is the event series for newcomers, beginners, proficient musicians working on secondary instruments, and anybody who needs a little help with the basics of working with other musicians.

This is where you practice in private, so you can eventually head out in public!

Hosted in a private venue with full access to a P.A., mics, drumkit, keyboard, and various percussion instruments, the Music Development Club aims to help you as a musician identify the next skillset you want to hone, and help you decide how best to go about doing just that.

We’ll be taking it slow, using a lot of communication, and working as a group to learn standard, jam-friendly songs and create some great music in a small, focussed group.

Each meeting will consist of some conversation and communication about your personal musical goals, and then will lead in to some focused musical performances of simple, jam-friendly songs. With a focus on education and communication, we’ll be working on getting you up to speed and comfortable with the structure of songs, working with other musicians, orchestrating songs on the fly, and so forth.

We’ll also give you a chance to break into smaller groups, perform solo and duet pieces, and practice new skills with new partners at every workshop.

Meeting every two weeks allows you to work at your own pace, so that at the next workshop you can showcase your project and choose a new task, and get new feedback!

So if you want a focus on education, communication, and personal musical growth, then the Music Development Club workshops might be what you’re looking for!

Please Note:  There is a suggested donation of $5 per session for this series of workshops.

    Would you believe I'm playing underwater hockey in Corvallis instead? Wonders never cease.

    I'm fighting off a bug so don't want to risk passing it to all of you. Sorry for the late notice but it came on very suddenly. Have fun.

    If work keeps me out ridiculously late, is it okay if I am a bit late?

      You are welcome to come anytime before we quit, of course! However, if you wind up being aware that you're going to have to miss, I do request that you take the time to change your RSVP online, so that the next person on the waiting list has a chance to attend.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
