We're delighted to be putting together another My Music 'Fun Day'. We ran a similar event a couple of years back and it was a great success so we wanted to do it again!
WHAT IS IT?
The day will involve various activities to watch, get involved with and play along to. We're bringing in two professional musicians to help you maximise your musical potential and have loads of fun on the way.
This day will be suitable for all levels of players, whether you are taking individual lessons with us, or if you are one of our band members...or both!
The masterclass will involve volunteers (*see below) playing a chosen piece of repertoire in front of the group and our visiting Pro will be on hand to help give constructive critique and encouragement. The points will be relevant to the player, piece but importantly to all watching as well. This may sound scary...but don't panic it's a great learning exercise and you can feel safe in front of your My Music fellow victims, ooh I mean fellow players :)
*We will require 5 volunteers + 1 sub (just in case). These spots will be given on a 'first ask - first get' basis so be sure to ask me when making your booking.
The rhythm workshop will involve us putting our own instruments down and experimenting with some fantastic samba drums under the expert eye of Simon Davie who will get us shaking, tapping and banging our way over rhythm exercises. This was great fun last time when we did African Drums, this South American adventure promises to be even hotter sounding!
We'll finish with a couple of massed ensemble sessions so you can get to play some new music with like minded individuals, so make sure you bring your own instrument!
HOW TO BOOK:
We wanted to keep it very simple. Just email firstname.lastname@example.org to book your place. The cost is just £20 for the day and includes tea & cake!
