Dear Young Musician,

The workshops are open to musicians aged 8-13 (or older) who play an instrument or sing. beginners are welcome. The aim is to help young musicians to begin to gain the knowledge, skills, experience and confidence to create their own music. Although written material is available for use, the aural approach - 'playing by ear'- will be the main focus. Experience of 'playing by ear' is not necessary.

The emphasis will be on enjoying the process of making music, the idea that there are 'no wrong notes', and the idea of individual creativity and empowerment through creating and playing music that has not been prescribed and is not written on paper. By the end of the workshop, everyone will have experienced improvising and will go away with some ideas on how to approach creating their own tunes through 'playing by ear'.

It is hoped that this series of workshops will encourage primary school participants to continue music when they progress to secondary school. Some may then wish to continue developing their experience and skills

Yours sincerely,
