Practical Self-Accompaniment Workshop

  • April 15, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • Bodhi's Basement Bistro

This once-a-month workshop is all about building up your skills as a solo performer.   Each class will be limited to 8 students.


Many people can play an instrument, and many can sing - but the trick is to do both, and make it your own!


Becoming an interesting listenable solo performer requires a number of different skills  particular to your style of music.  This workshop will focus on the practical aspects of orchestrating and arranging pieces for solo self-accompaniment.   We will discuss topics such as arrangement and orchestration, rhythm and percussive playing within a solo accompaniment structure, practical self-accompaniment tips, audience interaction, and effective use of amplification and electronics.

Participants will be required to show up with at least 3 pieces they are working on.  Using cheat-sheets and notes to ease your mind during performance is highly recommended.


Please Note:  There is a $10 fee for this 3-hour workshop.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
