Floriano Santoro

Workshops, First Semester 2017

Band Workshop 1  

Content: This Band Workshop is aimed at adults 30 and up, who’ve been playing an instrument for years, but haven’t had the chance to play in a band. In a casual, relaxed atmosphere you’ll learn to understand yourself and your function as instrumentalist in a band better. With the help of song fragments we’ll work on issues like interaction, groove, timing, dynamics, and the reading and understanding of song structures. In the process, we’ll work as a team on pitch from the Leadsheet and, depending on the level, notes/tabs as well. Needless to say, there will be a debriefing session and detailed feedback after the workshop.
