So you’ve learnt a good tune? Make it a party piece!

Sunday 20th November 2011 2pm-5pm

The Workshop:

 Using simple tunes and phrases we will explore ways of using rhythm, ostinato patterns, various harp techniques and plain old cheating to find out how best to make a tune ‘your own’ in an individual, delightful and vibrant way! This workshop is suitable for all levels, music will be provided but notation reading not necessary. We will work as an ensemble, no pressure to play on your own unless of course you would like to!

 Come along, try out ideas and create beautiful music!
