Get Creative Ensemble for young instrumentalists aged 12-18

  • Workshop
  • Free event

Regular creative music making sessions for young instrumentalists aged 12-18 who love playing and creating music!

In these sessions young people will have the opportunity to explore new music and develop their own musical creativity through playing, improvising, and creating. 

Young people will discover and play new music by contemporary UK composers, be encouraged to experiment with sound, learn how to create their own graphic scores, and meet like-minded young musicians in the area.

The workshops involve playing as part of an ensemble and reading music, so participants need to be technically proficient on their instrument and have some experience of playing with others and reading musical notation. Approximate/equivalent standard for guidance is Grade 2 minimum. 

Suggested ages are a guideline - we encourage participants to attend the group that would be most beneficial to them at this point in their creative development. However, we typically recommend the Ensemble for young people who are already attending secondary school.

A short sharing performance for family and friends takes place at 3pm after each session. 


26 May 2024 | 1pm - 3.15pm | King’s Pavilion, University of Aberdeen
