Etienne from Whitelands First Timers 2017 will be teaching how to use looping and looper pedals! Looper pedals can record and repeat something you play, so that one person or instrument can layer lots of sounds at once. They are very cool.

πŸ’– About the workshop πŸ’–

In-depth guide about types of looping pedals and reasons to use them, live skills with said loopers, pedals that do loops that aren't loopers, metronomes, computers, frequenices and context of loopers in pedalboards. Even though it's indepth it's still worth coming to for beginners since it'll give you some ideas if you have a small amount of band members or are in solo projects.

πŸ’– About EtienneπŸ’–

18 year old Etienne started this project in his spare time at college - showcasing his first performance as a band at first timers 2017. They have since gone on to play @decolonisefest numerous gigs and @indietracks only one year later. Check out their shoe-gaze indie pop ballads at https://whitelands.bandcamp.com/music

❀ About First Timers ❀
FTF is a season of workshops followed by a two-day festival where every band plays its first show. FTF is about getting new faces and voices in bands, and doing something about the lack of diversity in the make-up of the DIY music community.

As a direct way of addressing the lack of diversity in the make-up of the DIY music community, our workshops centre people who are disabled (visible or non-visible), LGBTQIA+ folk, people of colour, and women. As well, we are here to support people who have never played in a band before // never played the instrument they've always wanted to learn before because of their class, race, gender, mental health, etc.

Our 2020 festival will be taking place on May 2nd & 3rd 2020. Applications from new bands to play are open:
