The Lazy Magician Presents: Local Brew with Pete Fields, Kristina Bennett, Ziva, and Mark Joseph - Private Parlor Show (($10 before/$15 day of show))

Pete Fields

Playing in the country punk outfit Trainwreck Riders over the last 10 years, Pete cut his teeth on the DIY circuit, playing house shows and bars from coast to coast. He is also the leader of and songwriter for local country/americana group Slow Motion Cowboys. But where Trainwreck Riders throws down the intensity, SMC pushes the soul. With a stripped down approach to folk music, the songs that Pete writes for SMC resonate with honesty and heartbreak under the framework of traditional country arrangements.

Kristina’s approach to teaching is to tailor lessons according to each client’s specific individual goals, needs, and desires.

Technique, proper breath control, range development, improvisation, music theory, ear training, songwriting, arranging, and performance coaching are all part of her curriculum. Her youngest student is 4, and her oldest is in their 70’s. She teaches everything from Pop, Country, Jazz/Blues, Classic/Indie Rock, Punk, Musical Theater, R&B, Electronica, and a splash of Opera.

In addition to her teaching, she also offers Sound Treatment Sessions. With the use of crystal bowls, tuning forks, shruti box, toning, breath work, mantras, vocals, chanting, and yoga, clients are given a gentle yet rejuvenating session. They will also learn simple and effective coping skills to use themselves, in times of stress, anxiety, or even just as an energizer.

Kristina’s extremely unique and rich background has enabled her to bridge the Western & Eastern Musical modalities together, offering a beautiful authentic style of teaching, and therefore learning experience for her clients.
