Original Band Workshop with Julie and Reece

 —  —

Girl Guitar Austin, Austin, TX

Are you a guitarist, bassist, drummer or keyboardist that would like the experience of being in an original band creating your own guitar riffs, beats or bass lines?

Then this is the workshop you've been waiting for.

Girl Guitar Teachers Reece and Julie are super excited to be working with Girl Guitar songwriter, Melissa Engleman! We have listened to and discussed the possible production ideas of 3 of her songs into a full band arrangement. Think something along the lines of Neko Case, Fiona Apple and Cowboy Junkies styles. A little bit country, a little bit dark and dreamy.

Bandmembers will meet with Melissa, Reece and Julie on August 4th from 2-5pm to discuss, develop and rehearse the song/s. And then also on Sunday August 5th, to rehearse and showcase these songs at a mini-concert put on for friends and family in the GG band room!

We look forward to helping you along your creative path!

Sat Aug. 4th–2-5pm and Sun Aug. 5th–2-4pm $150/Per Person
