Jam Session 101 and Practice Workshop

  • May 22, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • Bodhi's Basement Bistro

This workshop introduces participants to the skills necessary to more fully participate in a jam session or impromptu music endeavor.

 

As a beginner's class, this is also a reasonable environment for experienced musicians to gain some practice-time with secondary, less-familiar instruments in a group setting.

 

Topics of discussion include the basics of song structure and orchestration, communicating song structure to new musicians, and leading a song in a music session.

 

Practical instruction in playing instruments, note-taking, lead breaks, and fronting a song will be presented.

The aim of this workshop is to give individuals the skills necessary to confidently and fully participate in open jams and other musical endeavors or events.

 

Please Note:  There is a fee of $5 per session for this 3-hour workshop.

    Hi Bodhi,
    Yesterday I felt like I could possibly be getting a cold. Went to sleep trying to program that possibility away. Can't in good conscience attend as the cold is full blown now. Please let the waiting person know. Sorry for the late notice.

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
