First time this workshop is being done in the Los Angeles area! Music Emerging presents Ed Tree, a veteran in the music industry as a producer, engineer, singer songwriter and also as a teacher for this very popular class from his teaching sessions at Summer Songs music camp! He is conducting it in the L.A. area for the first time!

Playing Well with Others

The pros make it look so easy but playing well with other musicians can be very daunting. This workshop will help explore techniques for playing along with other musicians in a song circle, jam or coffeehouse setting. You don't have to be a virtuoso to contribute. Whatever your level of expertise and whatever instrument you play, we will look at some of the ways you can, "play well with others."

Event takes place at the beautiful Lyd and Mo Photography Studio in Pasadena. Seating is limited. Please bring an instrument. Parking lot in back or street parking-free on Sundays. Tickets are on a sliding scale-$15-25. Please pay full amount if you can. Tickets can be purchased through EVENTBRITE
