Other workshops include:
From Your Own Living Room to the Concert Hall – How to build a career as a full time musician
– I started out playing on my front steps. Then I progressed to open mics. Now I tour internationally with my “Remembering Pete Seeger” World Tour. I have seen hundreds of other musicians start out at open mics that I ran and work their way up to full time musicianship or to some level in between where they feel most comfortable. What are your goals? What can you do to get there? Learn the not-so-obvious answers in this workshop.
Songwriting From Your Dreams
– Where does music come from? I know one songwriter who will only work with melodies he gets in his dreams. I have gotten bits and pieces of melodies or lyrics or whole band parts of songs in my dreams. I even got an entire song once in a dream. This workshop explores how we can prepare ourselves to discover the music waiting for us in our dreams; what practices can help us better remember our dreams; and what to do with the music we get in our dreams.
Circle of Song Master Class
– Anybody can run a “Circle of Song” or a “Song Swap,” a “Songwriters Showcase” or a “Jam Session.” What’s the difference? How can you participate or even run one of these in a manner that will make it a rich experience for everyone – including people who play an instrument and sing, people who sing but do not play an instrument, and people who love music but neither play nor sing?
Working with Your Inner Manager
– This workshop is for those who believe their lives can be guided by a “higher power.” Have you ever wondered why that gig got cancelled last minute? Or why the phone rang at a specific time? Or you were offered an opportunity to take some kind of gig that seemed just a little bit beyond your talent? We’ve all heard the idea that life has a way of giving us exactly the experiences that will benefit us most. This workshop explores how that same idea works in our music careers.
