MAC and Bistro Award winning Music Director, Arranger, Songwriter and Teacher, Gregory Toroian, is offering another Piano/Bass/Drum Workshop (PBD), LIVE in his studio on 35th St. between 7th & 8th., starting the week of September 9th and running for 4 consecutive weeks

This is NOT virtual, online, or Zoom. There will obviously be different considerations than there have ever been before, and here they are:

PRECAUTIONS

1) Each class roster will be limited to 4 students. (There’s plenty of room in my studio for everyone to social distance).
2) Everyone but the person singing will keep their mask on.
3) Each singer will have their own individual sponge windscreen to cover the mic while they sing.
4) There will be a plexiglass barrier attached to the mic.
5) We will wipe down the mic, mic stand, and plexiglass barrier between each singer.
6) There will be an exhaust fan in the window.

SCHEDULE, etc.

1) Please let me know your availability Monday thru Friday, daytime or nighttime, as soon as possible. Based on your availability, I will coordinate with the musicians the days and times the classes will be scheduled.
2) Classes will only run 2 hours due to the smaller enrollment. Everybody will still get the same amount of individual time that they always have.
3) Please feel free to email me with any questions at all. See details below.

PIANO/BASS/DRUM OPEN WORKSHOP

Most singers jump at the chance to sing with a bass player and drummer–and the PBD Workshop gives you that chance! Whether you’re an experienced performer or new to it, now you can have the experience of hearing and feeling the different musical support when singing with piano and bass and drums. In this open class, bring in songs you have already worked on, songs you know very well, and try them out with a fuller musical accompaniment.  And while we’re at it, we’ll experiment and do these tunes in different styles. You may discover you’re a different singer! The first 2 of the 4 sessions will be with a pianist and a bass player; the last 2 sessions, we will bring in a drummer!

Please meet Gregory Toroian!
