Workshop:: Caroline Helm discusses BAND DYNAMICS 06.20.12

Whoever said being in a band was easy just didn't know the truth. It's a lot like every other important relationship in life with power struggles, emotional needs, etc. etc. etc.

These are common challenges that every band faces at one point or another, and this workshop aims to help band members and future band members to gain insight about band dynamics to maximize their success.

Caroline Helm, LCSW, is a therapist by day and musician by night. Her successful band The Figs was an awakening for her and the inspiration for this workshop. She continues to play music around town and is the force behind the semi-annual Nue Moon Revues.
