How to play in a band
Niagara Falls Workshop
What a fun day for 12 young musicians, ages 7 to 13, in Niagara Falls Ontario. At the studio of Alessandra Dicienzo we learned how to play in a band. Using iPhones, iPads, Keyboards, Pianos, Cajon, Alesis Drum Pad, Drum set, and shakers we rocked up a storm.
We started by learning a Rock-a-billy version of Abigail’s Boogie for multiple keyboards and finished up with a rousing reading of Katy Perry’s Part of Me. Then we performed the 2 pieces for family, all in three short hours.
I was really impressed at the intensity of the effort and the wonderful music that resulted.
Thank you kids.

You've got to learn your instrument. Then, you practice, practice, practice. And then, when you finally get up there on the bandstand, forget all that and just wail.
