Monday 12th and Tuesday 13th February 2018 10am - 4pm
SoundsCreative Ensemble is a half-term music project for young musicians (age 8 -14) who play a musical instrument and want to be in a band, get creative and compose some new music as a group.
This two-day workshop is creative and social, mixing band and classical instruments into one exciting musical pot with an informal end of project performance.
More about the creative process:
A team of the SoundsCreative connected artists support the children in developing new skills in improvising, creating, and composing music as a band. The participants not only use their own instruments throughout the workshop but also take part in a variety of vocal and percussion activities to help create ideas for their new composition. (Notation reading not required, just bring your ideas, enthusiasm and your instrument!).
Leaders this project include:
Filipe Sousa (Pianist and composer), Preetha Narayanan (Virtuoso Violinist and composer) and Tara Franks (cellist, composer and SoundsCreative Projects director)
