San Francisco, CA (May 3, 2010)–Women’s Audio Mission has announced its summer workshop series, geared toward musicians and composers.
The series kicks off on May 20 with Turn It Up! All About Electric Guitars, designed to give both musicians and engineers a better understanding of the instrument; students will receive a free guitar cable.
In Indie Artist 101 on June 10, students will learn strategies for becoming successful musicians, from forming bands to selecting gear to booking gigs.
Composing for Film on July 15 shows filmmakers and aspiring film composers how music is integrated with visual media, using a professional film score as an example.
“We had a great turnout for our spring classes, which focused on hands-on topics ranging from soldering to making your own mic,” said WAM Executive Director Terri Winston. “Many of our students are musicians, and have been requesting classes tailored for them. So, we’ve put together a workshop series that focus on the needs of both musicians and engineers working with musicians—to help them get ahead in the studio, and in their careers.”
Classes are open to the public; WAM members receive substantial discounts.
