WANTED: STRING PLAYERS FOR A ROCK ORCHESTRA CLASS THIS SUMMER! Here are all the details, as provided by Brittany Frompovich, Forte instructor, performer and internationally known professional bassist, who will lead this exciting summer opportunity:
We are looking for acoustic and electric string players, violinists, violists, cellists and double bassists of all ages and skill levels. We will be performing rock, pop and contemporary classical pieces in an orchestral setting, using both electric and string instruments.
When: Summer 2017 session begins on Wednesday, June 14, 7:00 p.m. at Forte Music Studios. We meet for an hour weekly on Wednesday nights. Here is how this group is different than a school or community orchestra: We have opportunities to improvise on some songs. If you don't yet know how to improvise, we will teach you if you are willing to learn. We teach the basics of live sound, amplification, playing an electric instrument, using effects and mics. Past song choices have included music from Hendrix, Queen, Muse, Zeppelin, Guns 'n Roses, Journey, Ozzy Osbourne, The Cranberries and more.
We teach you as much as you are willing to learn about the music business -- practices to engage in for performing, how to use social media properly, contracts, endorsements, jobs in the industry and more! Even if you never work as a musician yourself, you will have a better understanding of the industry and business of being a musician.
The class is proudly sponsored by our friends at NSDesign and Warwick Amplification. (See more about our sponsors at their websites: www.nedsteinberger.com and www.warwickbass.com.) We play a variety of shows. We've played various house concerts, venues, flash mobs, churches, and we've been filmed for a TV show and a documentary.
The cost is $100 for the summer semester, payable by check, cash or credit card. Enrollment is open through June 28. For more information or to enroll, you may contact Brittany Frompovich at email@example.com, or by phone at 540-604-7266. Learn more about Brittany at www.ladybassmusic.com.
