Class syllabus: 

welcome

- Christine call-in

my vision for Mochi Mochi
- 60min professional performance, $750-$1500 gigs
-- musically, visually, deliciously engaging
-- fun and memorable audience participation
-- amazing group of friends "doing what they do"
- performing arts venues requires reputation, reliability, ability to sell tickets
- unconventional venues require skill, flexibility, confidence

procedural
- meetings like this once every three months
- monthly announcements from roles
- how decisions are made: consensus, and if that fails, we can choose to vote or leave decision to benevolent dictator
- how to use website
- everyone's contact info

Mochi Mochi member responsibilities
- dues (<=$80/mo) due at beginning of month
- regular attendance
-- expectation of attendance at every practice
--- conversely, expectation on me that every practice is worth your attendance
--- because that standard is pretty high, room for flexibility: max 2 missed practices per term?
-- expectation of being on-time
--- standard for self
---- being on time shows respect for Kris' planning and the other members
---- the beginning of practice is important: sets the stage for practice (overview) and is a useful social ritual
--- standard for others
---- assume good faith
---- reach out to help
--- (KB to keep notes)
- role responsibility (1 hr / wk)
- skill improvement
- contribution to group development
