Pinetop Perkins Workshop Experience

Hopson Plantation, Clarksdale, MS

Lisa Biales returns as vocal coach to give private tutorials to each student. For piano, guitar, bass, drums and harmonica, professional Blues musicians will present the music and techniques for playing it. Sorry, no beginning students allowed. Everyone needs to already have a basic knowledge of their instrument. We won't be starting from scratch. Any musician who has been playing seriously for a year or so should be able to make a lot of progress in his or her Blues playing. We require at least two years experience for piano workshop participants. Workshops are open to the young and young at heart - adults welcome! Scholarships are available for youth ages 12 to 21.
