Workshops & School Presentations
Alice DiMicele has taught many workshops for both adults and children. She and her bandmates are available for school visits to play for kids in classrooms or at school assemblies and they love to do this while on the road. Along with standard performance in schools, Alice and her bassist Rob Kohler have worked in classrooms along with music teachers to teach kids one of her songs and also to write songs. She is also available to do stand alone workshops or to teach at the festivals she performs at. Some workshop options are:
Songcatching: This is Alice's signature songwriting workshop that includes writing exercises, philosophy of why we write songs, technics for allowing songs to emerge naturally, and much more. This can be presented as a lecture or a hands-on workshop with participation.
Developing Resonance: A voice workshop that includes exercises, philosophy, and a section on natural vocal care for singers. This can be presented as a lecture or as an experiential workshop.
