A ZONE OF YOUR OWN.
The joy of practice comes alive for LA's amateur musicians in a singular program we call Public Practice. Here, players at every level practice in unique spaces - by a fountain, in the garden, even amid parked cars - for experiments and experience with their instrument. You'll find your own zone.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
A unique and informal music-making opportunity...
- Apply to participate as a solo musician.
- Non-professional instrumentalists are then selected to PRACTICE music in surprising outdoor public spaces at The Music Center and in Grand Park.
- Practice a new piece of music, a new skill/technique, or a new instrument - warm-ups, scales, riffs, patterns, improvisation, starts/stops and mistakes allowed.
WHO CAN PARTICIPATE?
- Open to SOLO non-professional instrumental musicians/music hobbyists of all skill levels and cultural musical traditions.
- Must be at least 18 years old.
- Must provide your own acoustic instrument*, sheet music and music stand (if needed).
- Must be willing to spend time practicing (not performing) in outdoor public spaces at the Music Center and in Grand Park.
Note: Instruments that require electricity to amplify sound (e.g. keyboards) are not considered acoustic. This program is designed as a practice opportunity for instrumentalists, not singers/vocalists.
Spring application period is now closed.
Check back in Fall 2013.
Through a peer review process, amateur musicians are selected based on stated interest and understanding of Public Practice, as well as commitment to recreational music-making. There is no audition.
