Music Performance Workshops

Watch this space.  We are in the planning stages for Music Performance Workshops/Open Mic here in West Hawai'i Island later this year.

These workshops will be designed for anyone interested in improving their music performances, we will engage in guided, collaborative discussions of strategies and techniques that have worked for us.  There will also be ample opportunity for participants to practice the techniques being discussed along with positive, supportive feedback about your performance from the group if you desire it. You will also have the opportunity to play with other experienced musicians.

We'll begin with a discussion of techniques and will build a catalog of the best practices uncovered in the discussion.  The remainder of each workshop will feature individual and ad-hoc group performances by participants.

Chet Gardiner, your workshop coordinator, has over 50 years of performing and recording experience as a solo entertainer and as a skilled sideman on guitar, vocals and bass. As a result, he’s had time to make every conceivable mistake. He has developed a basic philosophy that has made his current solo performance and sideman gigs much more relaxing, more fun and, as a consequence, much more entertaining for those watching. He is eager to learn even more, improved ways to succeed from attendees.
