Consultation One to One
I’m Michael Welch; I’d like to offer my skills and experience to those seeking to achieve a higher level of performance and production. In business, professionals seek consultants on a regular basis. My program is the same, but I’ll share my knowledge in the particular field that you are interested in. Pertaining to music and drumming, I’m offering my knowledge in the area of improvisation. Our phone or Skype meeting will focus on the area you would like to discuss and improve on.
A preliminary email, or correspondence will prepare us to make the best of your time and money. Video and text are both welcome. This is not an online drum lesson with me playing; there are hundreds of those available today. In 1984, I studied for 3 weeks with Elvin Jones; the best thing I learned and took from our meetings and lessons were his verbal knowledge, narrative and stories. As an improvising musician, much of the concept is more mental attitude, knowledge, confidence and less about chops or technique. I have numerous drum videos online for you to view. A video from you is welcome, if you care to send one in advance. Tied into the topic of Quadragrip, I can also talk about my concepts of improvisation. Your consultation purchase will include digital downloads of my various books and audio.
In the business of music, as an author, I’ve created over 25 books, numerous CD’s, videos, podcast and more. Those that work to be a full time musician, making a living in the music business need to think outside the box.
Topics in the area of publishing and production can include artwork, hiring artist, printing, layout, distribution, trade shows, marketing, sales, audio recording and editing, video recording editing, production programs, online publishing and creative concepts to start and complete your project.
If you’re interested in scheduling a consultation, you can start by sending me an email.
I’m looking forward to our initial conversation, MW
