It is essential to bring an instrument – brass, wind, strings and percussion and all non-European instruments are particularly welcome with limited opportunities for amplified instruments.

 

Participants can attend a single workshop, a single day, or they can come to all of them.

The content of each workshop will change to suit those attending,

so participants may elect to attend both or all the Asian or Latin/African workshops.

Workshop 1 in South Asian music

Workshop 1 in Latin and African music

BRING YOUR OWN INSTRUMENT

(please note limited opportunities for amplified instruments)

Details as above

 

NB.  for Grand Union Orchestra workshops, simply turn up on the day with your instrument

OR pre-book your space by contacting Richard Mallett (see below)

 
 

Workshop content

The South Asian workshops will explore a range of techniques and material including Bengali folk song,

Indian ragas and time cycles; it will be largely melodic and improvisation (again optional!) will be mostly scale-based.

 

The Latin/African workshop will explore West African drum rhythms, South African township music, Latin-American rhythms and Caribbean styles; it will be largely rhythmic and ensemble-based, with improvisation on percussion and across simple harmonic sequences.

 

5.00pm-5.45pm

A Band in a Day!

At the end of each afternoon there will be an informal  public performance

where workshop participants will be invited to join the Grand Union musicians

– but only if they wish to!

Review by: Corin Stansfield, 02 December 2010
'This is a fantastic educational resource on what is music and includes a great sweep of coverage from early music to international music to different styles of music while highlighting different composers, musicians and instruments. The CD tracks are well chosen, would be great to use with a class and are well signposted throughout the book.'
