FREE UPCOMING MUSIC BC WORKSHOPS
NOVEMBER 18TH, 10AM – 1PM: LEADERSHIP SKILLS FOR MUSICIANS
We all aspire to be the best we can be, but how do we know where – and how – to start? The purpose of this half-day workshop is to help participants identify areas of current strength, and areas for further development, in their emotional intelligence and leadership abilities.
NOVEMBER 26TH, 12PM – 5PM: GET STAGE READY & GET YOUR TECH TIGHT
The professional musician must have a fluent understanding of the machinery, language and culture of the technical music production industry. Having the ability to clearly communicate your needs with technical crew and concert producers, understanding the basic functions of the most common equipment, and possessing strategies and best practices for interfacing with production crew and equipment is integral to presenting a professional show.
This workshop and panel will give students an introduction to technical production and offer solutions to some of the most common challenges encountered by performing artists on the road.
