Musical Performance & Navigating The Business of Music
with Brian Farrell & Ashwin Sood
Reboot Lab is a workshop is designed with the ambitious musician in mind. It’s for those looking to fine tune musical skills while learning how to navigate the current business of music.
These workshops cover topics such as: songwriting, performance, recording, studio process, practicing, PR, listening, the story inside the song, groove and technique. The session is an open forum where participants are encouraged to ask questions relating to the art of making music and performing.
This is the 3rd year of sessions for Reboot Lab. The idea for Reboot Lab was born from an interesting beginning – Brian was Ashwin Sood's music teacher. He saw qualities in Ashwin that could not be ignored and Brian became an integral mentor and ongoing teacher in Ashwin’s journey to becoming a respected professional and accomplished musician (Drummer with Sarah McLachlan, Jason Mraz / Producer / Talent Scout).
As Ashwin’s studio and production career became busy, he invited Brian out to recording sessions and live performances to first observe, and then help nurture the process. Ashwin quickly realized Brian’s approach and background as an educator and vocal coach added huge value to the process resulting in great breakthroughs with singers and performers. Brian and Ashwin made a great collaborative team that worked effectively to make an immediate and substantial difference for artists. Thus, the idea of Reboot Lab was born.
Their combined history and background provides a unique and big picture approach that makes Reboot Lab stand out from all other industry workshops. Look for Reboot Lab to be launching workshops nationwide in the very near future!
