Golden Link Sponsored Workshops

Workshop.jpgGolden Link sponsors fun and educational workshops to help you hone your skills as a performer, a hobbyist, a singer-songwriter, or just someone who enjoys singing or playing folk music.  Some are presented by Golden Link members, while others share the wisdom and experience of performers from the Golden Link concert series.  You'll enjoy them all!

Workshops are open to all, whether you're a Golden Link member or not. There is usually a minimal fee to defray the cost of the room where the workshop is held.  To keep these events small and personal, attendance is very limited.  Note that workshops are subject to cancellation if there is insufficient interest based on the number of online registrations.

To reserve your spot, please register online by clicking on the workshop of interest below.

    You’re in a Jam: Now What?

    Ever wonder what people mean by a folk jam or jamming? Bring your questions as well as your instrument. David Russell has been in many a jam and will kindly guide you through one, using two- or three-chord songs. After this, you’ll know how to prepare for jams around greater Rochester and look forward to jumping in.

    Rhythm - 5/8

    Registration: $6

    Judi Salsburg Taylor, teacher and long-time drummer/percussionist, will present a percussion workshop with a variety of rhythms to fit many styles and songs. This is a chance to try different folk percussion instruments, practice techniques with them, and learn how to “listen” for rhythm parts. You may bring instruments of your own, as well as a favorite song to accompany with a fitting rhythm. Egg shakers, drums, tambourines, wood blocks, spoons, etc. are welcome.

    Percussion_600px.jpgAfter the workshop, attend the second half of the usual Tuesday evening sing-around with the opportunity to practice some of your newfound technique!
