Musical Busking Workshops - GENERAL INFORMATION
The Musical Busking Workshops are a way of enabling young people (under 18yo) to develop confidence to play music in public and
to later play on their own as a busker (if they so wish).
Purpose: Aim at busking on your own beyond the workshop: develop confidence to play your music in public,
learn your responsibilities as a busker, learn what to pack, learn what is important to you,
and how to manage your area, and the audience... whilst enjoying your music.
Details applicable to all busking workshops:
Your responsibility as a player:
- Bring your musical instrument and music, appropriate clothing, water and food, and a will to learn and share
- Give yourself enough time to setup and start on time
- Use the supplied equipment respectfully eg microphone, amplifier, music stand
- Respect the other workshop participants
NOT our responsibility:
- Organise the legal use of the public space
- Provide the resources to advertise the workshops and support the player such as microphone, amplifier, music stand
- Ensure the player whilst playing is safe
- Facilitate the learning of each player seeking feedback
- the well-being of players registered for the workshop but awaiting playing is not our responsibility.
It is expected that the well-being of players awaiting playing falls under the responsibility
of their parent or accompanying adult.
