Describe clearly the content of this workshop: ­
'For Singers/Songwriters - Accompanying yourself on Guitar and Piano. How to best put across your songs in performance. Practical advice' . Participants would probably be solo singer/songwriters who accompany their own songs (rather than play in a band). Can be pretty much beginners but need some basic experience of performing. It would be along similar lines to the CA talent evaluations but with more focus on how best to communicate songs to an audience - everything from choice of chords, guitar style to use of dynamics in instrument and voice through to body language and eye contact.
