LEARNING: Creative Workshops

Posted on August 2, 2011

Manchester Camerata’s developed four exciting half-day workshops for schools, using music to explore areas of Literacy, Science and Maths across the curriculum.

The workshops are: Fairytales (KS1), The Body Band, Jabberwocky! and Music by Numbers (KS2).

Each workshop will enable participants to explore subjects from the inside out in a fresh and interesting way, creating a new piece of music from a non-music stimulus; this can be shared in an informal performance at the end of their session, making an ideal class assembly.

These practical sessions give pupils an opportunity to develop new skills and review existing ones, to improve self-confidence, academic attainment, behaviour and social skills.

Each workshop can be adapted for the participating year group. Teachers can also use the workshops to increase confidence and raise their skill levels in music and composition by working alongside a professional composer and an experienced Camerata musician.

Detailed information about each workshop, including prices and booking details, can be found in the pdf download below.
