In order to save time we will ask participants to upload what they have been working on to a Dropbox. We will share lyrics and audio from the dropbox. A link to the BOAW Night Class dropbox will be shared on the week leading up to the course. Beginners guide to Dropbox HERE
We will work on some tasks during the workshop and also set tasks for participants to work on during the week.
For some tasks we might ask for you to work in pairs. We can do this with breakout rooms during the workshop or outside of class time.
WHAT YOU NEED:
A functioning internet connection.
Headphones to avoid feedback loops on the Zoom call. Headphones are essential to the smooth running of the meeting. If you have budget for a fancy new pair we recommend 250 ohm version of THESE. They are extremely comfortable to wear for long periods of time and are considered the industry standard for listening to audio mixes. You will not regret buying them.
A way of sharing your lyrics. ie sharing a .pdf, docx or pages file to the dropbox.
A way of recording your song. A phone recording is absolutely perfect. If you set up the Dropbox App on your phone you can share directly to the BOAW dropbox.
Something to write with and something to write on. Pen, paper, tablet, computer...
