August Practical Musicianship Classes: for children aged 4-12

The summer holidays are fast encroaching... yay! Only 3 more weeks to go! I had an idea a few years ago to put on some kind of fun, summer workshops for kids and finally I'm getting round to it!

This year, I am running a 4 week course of Practical Musicianship workshops during August. The classes are for children who are either learning a musical instrument, or thinking about starting. We will explore a number of musical and creative subjects using the body and voice and inspired by equipment (such as hoops, balls, bean bags), pictures, poems, recorded music, and improvised music.

The class will run every Wednesday morning for ages 4-5, 6-8 and 9-12. Timings and prices are on the poster below:

The prices shown are for all 4 classes, but if you are only able to attend 1, 2 or 3, that option is available. Children don't need to attend consecutive classes. I require full payment by July 25th in order to confirm your place.

Dalcroze Eurhythmics for Adults in Derby

Hi everyone,

By popular request, I'm excited to say I am setting up a Dalcroze Eurhythmics class for adults. The class will teach musicianship through movement. It's a blend of learning how to be 'in the moment', creativity, quick reaction, musicality, singing, collaboration... and many people find it quite therapeutic as well as lots of fun! I'm so happy to have had so much interest so far. Dalcroze classes are so fantastic and I've been keen to share my experiences since I started a few years ago. I teach regular Dalcroze classes to children on Saturday mornings, but have been wanting to teach adults for years so I'm thrilled that this will be happening soon!

I'll run a free trial session for people to see what it's about, and if I have enough interest, I'll run a weekly class... Perhaps one weekday evening, and probably at The Voicebox, in Derby. I'm hoping to be able to price it at £6 for an hour's session.

Let me know if you're interested, and feel free to ask any questions or to let me know what kind of time/ day is good for you, if you think you'd like to join in!
