Clyde Tukaiora Connell
A well known local musician and song writer within the rohe. A great advocate for persons to have a go, enjoy music, and discover their creative musical potential.
Clyde has previously held several successful creative workshops for Rangitahi and local musicians in Warkworth, which have resulted in some great confidence building outcomes.
Clyde regularly facilitates musical jam sessions throughout the rohe. Sometimes these have been known to be “eclectic”.
Clyde will act as an “organiser” for the Wananga and offer assistance where possible. He will be responsible for setting up and staging of the concert on Sunday.
Wendy is an experienced singer and musician who will be helping with the vocal element of the workshop.
We will explore key, harmony and dynamics to give you the tools to give your vocal part movement and interest. We will work as a group and individually to develop harmonies and vocal arrangements to give you ideas to use in your own songs. Also we will talk about mic technique and audience engagement.
Rob will be running the "Bandcraft" workshop covering the technical aspects of being a musical artist and performer. Taking a hands on approach we will go over P A equipment, amps and instrument set-up, stage positioning, mixing tips etc for the live environment and you will experience recording and mixing your songs (time allowing) to help you in the studio. Rob will also record and mix down the Sunday performances for you all to keep. There will be a full PA system set up for you to learn on and a full stage of equipment to work with.
