 Sideperson Strategies - Ideas for playing WITH others instead of AT them!
For Intermediate to Advanced lead players who would like to accompany others.
Nina and Kristina turn the role of side person on its head and dissect the motivation and technique in how to be the best side person possible.
Come prepared to be silly and vulnerable.
Nina gives lead players in-class exercises to practice all the aspects of the successful side person, for example:
• How to connect with the song and the singer
• When to play and when not to play
• How to take solos that build intensity
• How to use your whole body, heart and mind to stand behind the notes you play.

Kristina is the guinea pig that participants get to accompany. She gets off on her connection with the musicians she plays with and is a rare songwriter who bends to meet the side person half way and therefore is great in this workshop, since she connects musically to whoever her side person is.
Nina Gerber is the consummate side person. With an ability and technique to play blisteringly fast and exciting leads, and the great taste to only do so when it enhances the song. She is known for having her heart in her hands when she plays. Because of this, she has accompanied Karla Bonoff, Greg Brown, Eliza Gilkyson, Kate Wolf, Dave Alvin, Laurie Lewis, to name a few.
