For the final questions of our evaluation form, we asked the attendants to the workshop 'Owning Your Spot' about what they had achieved thanks to Cafemnee, if they ever had attended a workshop with us before. Here, some of their answers, which make us very proud.
"Owning Your Spot" was, in a way, the culmination of several processes that were developed in previous workshops of Cafemnee. So far, most of our sessions had focused on things to do out or around the stage: practise, management, finances, communication with agents and clients, and so on. This time, we went directly to the stage, and that allowed us to apply knowledge acquired in all those previous experiences, and understand just how much we have changed for the best.
The Musicians Union let Millicent know about this three-day, non-residential drumming event that will take place over the weekend of Friday 21st to Sunday 23rd February in Redditch, Worcestershire. It is open to drummers of all abilities, and suitable for those age 14 and up. Maybe it is of interest for some of our members!
Bands are a bit like long-term relationships, and, in that regard, it is essential that you develop communication strategies to overcome disagreements without aggression. In this episode, Millicent uses tools as the Myers–Briggs Type Indicator to help you find some ways to deal with personality clashes and keep your band on rails.
We would like to know what you think about Cafemnee hosting a continuation to the workshop "Owning Your Spot"
Beverley Edwards shares with us her experience with Cafemnee and how the workshop helped her finish "FaithFul God", her first EP.
Two heads think better than one, but at the same time, they bring the misunderstandings, disagreements and confrontations to the table, and with those come some negative feelings that can ruin the entire experience. To help with that, Millicent brings in this episode ten rules to address the issues that arise when you work in a band or group.
