Future Skill Building for Musicians and Producers (Live Sound, Performance, and Technique) @The Cap
10:00 - 12:00 PM Saturday 17 June FREE
Music director, drummer, arranger, and entrepreneur, Donny Milwaukee is dedicated to sharing experiences and knowledge sourced from his teachers in Toronto, NYC, and LA. He has worked as a music director for over 100 artists, local independent to international major label acts. As a previous live venue, recording studio owner, and contemporary vocal coach, this workshop will cover a wide base foundation for anyone interested in working in the professional industry in a multi-faceted approach. Coffee and pastries will be provided!
It is aimed at any musician, producer, or industry professional to better understand technical aspects and knowledge/skill development.
- Live sound and performance techniques: Taking care of equipment, supporting setups and teardowns, running your own events, and understanding stage plots and recording studios
- Rhythm: Teaching core elements of what it’s like to play in a band together, removing various boundaries and barriers from the essence of "locking in"
- Vocal technique: Contemporary-based vocal technique targeting singers and rappers. The method taught is unique to other major vocal technique pedagogies: opera, bel canto, SLS, IVA, Brett Manning, and others. Results aim for to be drawn out in under 60 seconds with a huge focus on the concept of muscular development.
