  • Build the confidence you need to be a great soloist.

ed-oates-with-guitarDave Motto’s Soloing Secrets workshop gave me – in one day – more clues and secrets about soloing than I’ve gleaned in years from lessons, rock camps, and just playing with bands. None of those secrets required that I suddenly develop new technical skills. The first half of the workshop focused on things any player at any skill level can do RIGHT NOW to improve their soloing. If I had left the workshop after that half day, I’d have gotten my money’s worth. I’d recommend this workshop to ANY musician on any instrument, including percussion, to quickly, painlessly, and enjoyably improve your soloing immediately.

Why This Workshop Is Unique

today1No Music Theory!

When most musicians think about soloing, they think it’s all about mastering scales and chords.

This information is important (and I cover it in my Advanced Soloing Secrets of the Greats workshop).

But, knowing all the scales and other music theory does not make you a good soloist.

This workshop gives you strategies to be a better soloist today – no matter your current skill level.

I promise that you will be a better and more confident soloist

David-Motto-DiscoveryThe Right Learning Environment

The workshop takes place in a friendly and supportive environment, where you can be yourself and have the opportunity to get the most out of the day. Creating great solos is more than playing great notes. It’s also about feeling confident, being yourself, and communicating your ideas. In this workshop, you’ll learn how to always feel confident and how to really communicate on stage.
