“We are very excited to announce the launch of the very first Annual GIG LAB, launching this JULY 2015 in the heart of Winchmore Hill. I have attached a flyer to this email and would appreciate it if you could circulate it to your network.
Gig Lab is an Annual Workshop for Guitarists of Intermediate level.
Running for the first time in 2015, this 3 day intensive course gives local aspiring Guitarists the chance to learn from an industry professional in a creative atmosphere of the Winchmore Hill Friends Meeting House. Participants will learn how to improvise and carry themselves in a live performance, will get the chance to workshop a well known piece of their choice whilst working on improving their playing skills, and finally, will be given the chance to audition for a LIVE guest spot in Winchmore Hill’s best loved gastro-pub, The Kings Head.
The course will be taught by Phil Short, Professional Guitarist and Teacher, and is hosted by ForeSound School of Music. Phil is well known in the industry, having played on Radio 1 Live Lounge and numerous national tours with artists like Tyler James and ChipMunk. Down Street, a well loved central London function band will join us this year as our guest band; their members acting as audition panel.
