Workshops for able instrumentalists and singers who are keen to develop their creative skills.

It may be you went to conservatoire but life ended up taking you in a different direction, or that you have honed your skills as an amateur player or singer, or that you are a professional musician looking for a fresh challenge and the opportunity to learn new techniques.


Or maybe you’re just after a fun opportunity to work with like-minded people on your musicianship at a satisfying, high level.

No experience of improvisation is required, but you will need to be open to giving it a go! Our workshops are about exploring different ways of creating music together, often taking a 'source piece' as inspiration.

One-day workshops

In the morning we work on collaborative creative skills and cross-stylistic improvisation in a series of fun exercises.


In the afternoon we unpack a famous score and you will be led through co-devising a response to it in small and large groups, with an informal sharing to end the day.
