Hothouse Rehearsal Studio Tips
Hi this is Richard Morales from
Hothouse Rehearsal studios..
Please join me for the
“Hothouse Rehearsal Tip”.
Each program I’ll be
discussing various methods and techniques to help your rehearsals become more
effective and efficient.
The topic for this program
is: “Types of Rehearsals”
point to cover when preparing the rehearsal game is to determine the appropriate
type of rehearsal to have. The song is the main determinant. Depending on where
a song is categorized on your list of readiness (song idea thru performance
ready) will determine the appropriate type of rehearsal to use. One rehearsal
session may incorporate the methods used in the various types of rehearsal.
Again the song dictates the type of rehearsal. So what are these rehearsal
- Jamming rehearsal –
new song is introduced, learn chord changes, very loose approach, figuring
out what the song should sound and feel like.
- Song writing
rehearsal – the band as a whole writes a song. Similar approach as a
jamming rehearsal except you’ll be creating the chord changes on the fly.
- Song Arrangement
rehearsal – assign parts and focus on specific sections in the music. Work
in small groups (bass and drums only, drums and vocals only).
- Performance rehearsal
– Your live set is fined tuned.
- Pre-production (for
recording) rehearsal – here your thinking about instrumentation, breaking
the song down instrument by instrument, assigning instruments to your track
- Technical rehearsal –
work on moving smoothly thru your effects processors, instrument changes,
and amp settings.
- On camera rehearsal –
video a dress rehearsal, practice movements.
- Live radio show
rehearsal – work on song introductions, edit song length if necessary, come
up with “sound bites”.
- Rehearsal for
interviews – have a friend interview the band; get comfortable with
answering questions on the fly.
We’ll be discussing these
types of rehearsals in more depth in up coming programs. So stayed tuned.
You are a band, a group
of musicians. The laws of nature say; “the whole is greater
than the sum of its parts”. Don’t fight Mother Nature. Substitute
the word “song” for “whole” and you get “the song is greater than the sums
of its parts”. When the song sounds great each member of the group will
shine within it.
