Be A Part Of The Next
Supertonic Guitar - Summer Gig
6pm August 5, 2023
In January 2016 we held our first ever student concert and it was a blast! The theater was so packed we had to keep finding new places to put people. Everyone who played had rapid progress in their guitar playing. It was awesome to watch all their hard work pay off with excellent performances. Every year since the seats are packed. It is full of fun and life changing experiences.
In February 2020 (our last live event before lockdowns) we sold out a 200+ person venue typically reserved for touring artists. 24 performers with a full band. A highlight of the year for all of us.

One of the greatest discoveries a man makes, one of his great surprises, is to find he can do what he was afraid he couldn't do.
DO NOT let fear hold you back!
This concert is all about having fun and growing as musicians. Everyone who performs will feel fear even if they don’t admit it. Those who perform in spite of fear will conquer that fear, grow in their skills, and develop confidence as a player. Those who do not perform will see others performing and wish they were the ones on stage performing. Even if you do not want to be a performer, this is a great opportunity to become a much better guitar player. You will find a whole new level of focus in your guitar playing and practice you didn’t even know you had. Ask anyone who did play at the events. They will tell you it was exciting, a little terrifying, super motivating, and totally worth it!
Performing is like an athlete training for the big game and actually being in the starting lineup. Athletes don’t train to sit in the stands.

- A positive attitude who works well with others
- Totally committed to playing in the concert and attending the rehearsals in July & August.
- Every song will be done live with a band. This may include: drums, bass, vocals, and guitars. You will get experience of what it’s like to play with a group which will be even more fun and less stressful than playing solo.
- Students will be assigned to play bass and guitar. If you’re interested in singing let me know in the form below.
- Parts will be assigned to students to play; rhythm guitar, lead guitar(solos), or bass. This will be based off of skill level and dedication as a student.
- Once you have committed to playing we will hold you accountable to fulfilling your role in the performances. Please, please do not sign up without really committing. It is not fair to your fellow performers/bandmates who are taking their part very seriously and working hard to have a great performance. Everyone wants to enjoy themselves and put on a great show for their family, friends, and for themselves. Together we will make that happen.
- All performers will use the same equipment on stage. This will save a lot of work and time in the performance and make the sound much better in the end.
- The concert will be on Saturday August 5, 2023 at Elroy Coffee.
- If you are chosen to be a part of the concert you will automatically be charged $100 for 5 tickets to the event. Tickets are $20 each and you can give or sell them to friends and/or family. Let me know if you want additional tickets. There will be no additional fee for performing. Gold(3x a week) and Platinum(4x a week) students get their 5 tickets for free. Additional tickets for Gold+ members will be $20 each.
- Rehearsals will be on July 29 @ 11am & August 4 @ 6pm. A final soundcheck rehearsal will be before the concert August 5 1hr before the gig.
- This is an all ages show, so no alcohol will be permitted.
In my opinion, the only way to conquer stage fright is to get up on stage and play. Every time you play another show, it gets better and better.
