School Holiday Program: Improvisation & Composition For School Students With Rupert Guenther

School Holiday Program: Improvisation & Composition For School Students With Rupert Guenther

DAY: 10 am to 12 noon - Monday 4 July - Friday 8 July

COST: $225.00 (includes course fee, GST and booking fee)

Open to all players 8+ years of age, of an intermediate standard and above, who want to start music improvisation and composition or accelerate their progress further.

Open to all instruments including voice.

Description: This is an opportunity for small group classes of students to get intensive (and fun), experience in making their own music through improvisation and composition - and no previous improvisation or composition experience necessary! It is structured to allow you to explore your own musical areas of interest in a respectful and imaginative space, and to find your own musical “voice”.

Learn how to improvise and compose your own music, solo, with friends or in bands and ensembles. We touch on many styles including classical music, rock, pop, blues and folk/world music sounds and styles. If you have always wanted to make your own music, write songs, improvise, compose music, be able to jam or play in a band, this course will give you a lot of positive experience and helpful tips and approaches you can use for the rest of your life. Being able to join in and play with other students and musicians of any musical background or style without needing music stands or pieces of paper for the notes, is a great freedom to give yourself. No need to learn another instrument to join in, the instrument you can already play is perfect!
Bring your instrument, a drink bottle, pen and note pad.
