I’m super excited to announce that Nashville vocal coach Robin Earl and I have teamed up to bring you what will be the first in a monthly series of fitness for musician workshops. We don’t want anyone to feel excluded – this casual, interactive workshop is for everyone: vocalists, sound techs, musicians, song writers, load crew, managers, etc. Musicians have such a unique job and one of the highest injury rates – yet we aren’t usually equipped with how to take care of ourselves, our first instrument. Robin and I are going to cover such topics as breathing and support, posture and alignment, singing free from tension, mindful practicing and performing and then we’ll get into the exercise segment with stretches, activation and weight lifting exercises specific to different instruments/jobs. First workshop is this Monday, February 6th from 11-12:30 PM at the Tennessee Songwriter’s Association. Admission is $15 in advance, $20 at the door. If you’d like to buy your advance tickets for a discount, you can send $15 to firstname.lastname@example.org through Venmo, Google Wallet or PayPal. Looking forward to seeing you there and building something great! We want this to be an ongoing project, evolving as we find out the needs of the entertainment industry, so we welcome your feedback.
