Musicians’ workshop available to students

July 17, 2013 by  

Students in grades 6-12 who want to discover the world of studio musicians, may want to attend the Summer Session @ The Woodshed – a series of workshops that give insight into the profession.

Students will learn techniques for different musical styles, discover how to improvise, practice on rhythm and percussion instruments, and learn how to record using ProTools software. Each session will conclude with an opportunity for young musicians to record what they have learned during the workshop.

The Woodshed is located at 12022 Centralia Street, Hawaiian Gardens. The first session will take place at 9:00 am on Saturday, July 20. Musicians can use business card printing to stay in touch with teachers, students, and other musicians.

A seminar on collection systems and safety will be held July 24 – 25 at the Huntington Beach Public Library in room E, located at 7111 Talbert Avenue. Safety is a top priority for many public officials, but this workshop is addressing the concern that residents also need to be aware of steps they can take to be safe in a potentially dangerous situation.

Attendees will be able to choose from a variety of courses, including maintenance, leadership development, collection system operations, active shooter, pipe rehab, and traffic control. An additional 10-hour OSHA course will be offered as well.

Vendors will be on site with a variety of displays and items for sale. The event is sponsored by the Labs, Sarbs, and Tri Counties sections of the California Water Environment Association. For more information, call (714) 307-2934.
