About this Event:

Join Jodi Proznick and Sam Hindle in a dynamic webinar designed for musicians. We will look at how to engage your audience, helpful websites and tools, lighting and sound considerations and how to cultivate a community using Zoom. This is a free webinar presented by BuckingJam Palace in Calgary, Alberta, Canada as an initiative to support musicians in a time of COVID-19.

Registered participants will be sent a Zoom link to the webinar two days before the event.

Jodi Proznick (Vancouver) is an award-winning bassist, composer and producer. She is Co-Artistic Director of the Music Arts Collective, Chair of the Jazz Studies Department at the VSO School of Music, and a vibrant and popular educator.

Sam Hindle (Calgary) is a sound technician whose expertise, enthusiasm and attention to detail make her a sought-after fixture on the Canadian music scene. You will find Sam’s steady hand behind events from live concerts to on-line music festivals across Canada.

Both Jodi and Samantha were kind enough to answer a few questions in advance of their upcoming webinar:

What are the challenges of presenting music online? (performing, teaching, etc.)

Jodi Proznick: “Most of the challenges of performing and teaching online have to do with technical issues. There is a huge learning curve to understanding not only how to make it look and sound quality but also how do you engage an audience that you were looking at on a screen.”

Sam Hindle: “There are lots of technical challenges with presenting music online! Pretty much overnight, musicians had to become their own IT whiz, as well as their own resident sound and lighting technicians. That can feel like a steep learning curve!”

What are some considerations and possible solutions you hope to offer to the participants?

Jodi Proznick: “Some of the solutions I hope to offer participants include ways to engage an audience during an event, how to utilize various platforms to create engaging and entertaining content, and perhaps most importantly how to bring your students and/or fans together in a community during a time where we can feel very separate from each other.”

Sam Hindle: “I can help make that learning curve less steep for those diving in now, and help optimize existing solutions by sharing some tech tips and tricks. I will cover topics like Zoom settings, microphone selection and placement, plus some sound theory that can be applied to online concerts, teaching or just your everyday meetings. There will be time for answering questions too! My #1 tip is to take the time to do a test ahead of any virtual event. For tips #2 – #100, tune in!”
