with composer Jenny Jackson and flautist Rachel Shirley
Saturday 21st October 2017
10am - 4pm
This one-day workshop will guide you through the process of composing your own short piece for flute, culminating with an informal performance and recording of all completed pieces. There will be group activities and individual writing time (with one-to-one support from Jenny and Rachel) with plenty of opportunities to hear outcomes and make revisions as your piece progresses.
This workshop is ideal for adults with little or no composing experience who want to 'have a go' in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. It is open to players of all instruments, not just flute. The idea is to offer an opportunity to compose without the limitations of playing ability, as Rachel Shirley will perform the pieces. The workshop may also appeal to creative non-musicians as various methods of notation will be explored. Don't worry: there are lots of tricks to make sure you don't get stuck!
