CREATE Music Labs Draw Crowds in Kent
8 November 2013
Teenagers and music teachers in Kent are flocking to take part in creative music workshops which give guidance on how to write music.
Organised by Soundhub, Kent's music service, the workshops give secondary school age children the opportunity to work with professional composers and musicians. Topics covered in the workshops include instrumentation techniques, how to create music in a variety of genres, inspiration and musical intuition.
Peter Bolton, chief executive of Kent Music, said: 'This is a great chance for students to take risks and push boundaries as their own compositions take shape and for school staff to pick up new teaching techniques. We’re delighted that so many students and teachers want to be involved and we are looking forward to organising more Music Labs in 2014 for musicians in other parts of Kent.'
The first event in the CREATE Music Labs series will take place next Friday 15 November, and is already fully booked. Kent-based Matthew King, a lecturer in composition at the Guildhall School of Music & Drama, will lead the workshop in Canterbury on the topic of 'Experimenting with Music for Small Ensemble'.
