Mike & Jo Whitney are thrilled to be a part of the French WoodÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Rock Shop this summer. As singer/songwriters and co-authors of Ã¢â‚¬Å“I Know ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Only Rock NÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ Roll but I Write ItÃ¢â‚¬Â, they enjoy teaching youth songwriting and live performance workshops. These workshops are high energy and geared for ages 7-17. Some of the activities that will be offered this summer will be:
- Songwriting Ã¢â‚¬â€œ using fun and easy activities as tools that are perfect for all levels of writing.
- Stagecraft- learning the art of stage presence that will help you to perform with confidence.
- Singing rock- voice protection, ear training, warm ups, phrasing of lyrics.
- Guitar- exercises & dexterity training, chord shapes, lead & rhythm techniques for all styles of music.
- Live Performance- overcoming stage fright, how to join a band, bantering with your audience.
And much more…
