Musicianship Class with Rick Bockner

Rick is offering a 5 class series of workshops for people who play an instrument, but want more understanding of the language of music, how to communicate their ideas to other people, performance, arranging songs for small groups, improvising, and jamming etiquette.

Cost is $100 for the series of 5 classes.

The first class will be on January 23rd (Sunday), from 2-4:30 p.m. at the Whaletown Institute.

Drop what you’re doing for an Easter Monday afternoon of creativee writing exercises to get your heart pumping and your hand dancing across the page. We’ll write quickly and slowly, seriously and playfully, letters, poems, tributes, rants, memories, tiny stories and passionate diatribes. Come to dip your toes into the beautiful worlds of your own words.
Ideal for beginner writers, seasoned writers, stuck writers, writers-in-waiting, writers with day jobs, writers who don’t call themselves writers just yet, and anyone who wants a date with their creative selves.

Currently, she works as a one-to-one writing coach, and teaches weekly, monthly and correspondence classes in creative writing and memoir-writing through her small business, Footprint Memoirs. Chris holds a Master’s Degree in Adult Education, examining the role of the creative writing as a tool of community building and personal growth. See: www.footprintmemoirs.com.
