We are hosting our first skill share for NEF participants who are considering starting a band for the fest!
We will be hosting 5 different music related skill shares in one day:
1. 30 mins of How to Start a Band 101 – The idea of starting a band from scratch can feel overwhelming when you don’t know where to start. Come check out this short panel discussion on how to start a band and have your questions answered!
2. 1 hour guitar skill share – Learn basic guitar techniques and familiarize yourself with the instrument.
3. 1 hour drum skill share – Learn basic drum techniques and familiarize yourself with the kit. **There will be only one actual kit at this session and participants will practice their techniques on practice pads.
4. 1 hour bass skill share – Learn basic bass techniques and familiarize yourself with the instrument.
5. 1 hour vocals workshop – Learn basic singing techniques. Facilitators will touch on basic techniques for melodic signing as well as techniques for heavier vocals.

Check back soon for the workshop schedule! As a rough idea, we have the space from 4:00 – 10:00 and workshops will be running back to back and one at a time.
There will be a second room for snacks and mingling for those who are not attending every workshop.
