is the new Musical Futures approach to non-formal music making with ensembles. Music is learned by ear and basic melodic ideas are developed through improvisation and collaborative composition.
Excellent workshops – extremely accessible for all abilities and levels.

Brilliant ideas to take forward into my own teaching… a fantastic day – left with lots of new ideas and strategies…
