Homemade: A Music Symposium

Published by Rich Van Voorst at 7:00 AM


The Artists and Writers Group will debut HOMEMADE: A Music Symposium on Saturday, June 7, 2008. This free event will be a music conference and performance event with interactive educational music workshops.

The theme is the do-it-yourself music business that is swiftly growing with the rise of the Internet and inexpensive editing software. Self-promotion and production has always been necessary and important to the beginning and independent musician anyway — but now ‘taking care of business’ is ever more important and relevant to each musician.

Hillsborough Community College-Ybor City campus (Tampa) is a partner and will host the event in their new performing arts building located at Palm Ave and 14th Street, across from the Cuban Club. The event will run 10am to 5pm Saturday, June 7, 2008.

The symposium is free and open to the public and is supported by a grant provided to the Artists and Writers Group from the Ybor City Development Corporation. The Bay Area Artists and Musicians Organization (BAAMO) are assisting with organizing the event.

Presentations, discussions and workshops will range from writing songs to making a low-cost video for the Net; from how to make an electronic press kit to improving live performance with acting techniques; from recording at home to booking a tour; from samples of the history of the American Songbook to playing for silent films; from how to tune and play a Irish bouzouki to making rock jazzy and jazz rock.
