The strings workshop teaches students to experiment with new sounds, effects pedals and loop stations. A piece of music is provided to learn during the workshop that incorporates basic improvisation skills and resources are left for students to continue developing these ideas throughout the school year. Equipment is provided and all students will have an opportunity to play on an electric instrument, but it is recommended to bring an instrument along for full participation in the workshop.
I can run up to three workshops over the course of the school day and tailor each workshop to be specific to the group. Schools can have the option of choosing a key focus area for each workshop. Options are;
Music from other cultures
Use of technology in music
