Is this Masterclass suitable for me?

BEGINNER TO INTERMEDIATE FOCUS

I created this Masterclass with the beginner to intermediate player in mind. I am aiming to bring inspiration to help boost your playing skills, jamming skills, songwriting and recording skills. To help you advance your playing by practising live music by yourself. Most of all, I aspire for it to be a fun and musically rich Masterclass full of live music, many of which written by myself.

Do I need to prepare?

NO PREPARATIONS REQUIRED

No. Just come as you are and enjoy the day together. There will be room for Q&A's and you may wish to give creative input in the collective songwriting section of the Masterclass, but this is optional. No pressure, just pleasure. If anything, you may wish to prepare some questions or book a table for lunch or dinner at Baringo.

How long does it last?

4-5 HOURS INCLUDING BREAKS

I have aimed to create 3-4 hours worth of songs and content to get the maximum out of the day together. I am assuming that you will be fulfilled & saturated by the end of it and hoping that I still have some energy to pack down :-).

What are the costs & terms?

125 AUD INCLUDING ALL FEES

The price for this Masterclass is 125 AUD including GST & all fees. Ticketing is via TryBooking and/or Eventbrite, as these are the safest and most user friendly booking systems in my experience. In the booking process I will ask you a few basic questions to best tailor the Masterclass to your musical context.

 

INDICATION OF SOUNDS

One of the hardest questions to answer is what musical genre I play. I often don't know, but what I play is somehow rooted in the many soundtracks of my life. The songs in the Masterclass will include Rock, Blues & Folk tracks and may well include Hip & Funky Neo-Classical Ambient Soft-Metal Soul-Punk Techno tracks. And whatever else you may throw in the mix. Sounds OK? I've added some examples below to get a feel for what I may play.

NO REGRETS

I am passionate to help you forward and I am looking forward to meeting you in the Masterclass. Should you (for whatever reason) not have had a good time and/or not learned something valuable I am happy to refund 50% of the ticket price, no strings attached.
