'Thinking Outside The Box' workshop with Mel Biggs
« on: July 31, 2017, 09:25:48 AM »

Happy to announce the very first off-my-own-back workshop! There are a lot of workshops coming up for me but I am especially looking forward to this one.

'Thinking Outside The Box' is a workshop idea I've been working on for about a year or so and has been inspired by workshops I've attended and elements of my experience working as a professional musician.

Mixed ability orchestra workshop with Mel Biggs exploring rhythm, arrangement & extra-instrumental techniques.

Some of the themes we'll be exploring during the day:
- Relaxing around improvisation
- What else our instruments can give us apart from tuned sounds
- Building an arrangement around 1 tune
- Syncopation
- Harmony and second voices/melodies
- Right hand chords

Please note that this workshop is not suitable for absolute beginners. Participants should have at least a basic understanding of their instrument. More experienced players are very welcome to sign up.

Fee: £40pp upon booking. Places limited.
For bookings please contact Nigel Brace: nigelbrace@aol.com
For extra info please contact Mel Biggs: mel@melbiggsmusic.co.uk

Intrigued? Please sign up and share!

Would have loved to participate but I'll be a Hartlepool Folk Festival that weekend. 😩
