Get Creative taster workshop with Pauline Black

Explore and experiment with the different sounds you can make on your instrument in this creative playing session led by Pauline Black, then come and join our Creative Orchestra!

The workshop is for children in P4-P7 who have been playing their instrument for a minimum of six months and can play a variety of different notes with ease. We will have a small number of keyboards for pianists (offered on a first-come first-served basis) and there will be percussion available.

To sign up, please complete this online form.

For instrumentalists in S1-S6

Creative Ensemble

Dates: Sunday 15 May &
Sunday 26 June
Time: 1.30pm-4pm
Venue: King’s Pavilion, University Road, University of Aberdeen AB24 3FX

Following on from our side-by-side sessions in February and March where we played In C by Terry Riley and music by Michel Nyman, delve into more new music with Pete Stollery and musicians from Any Enemy.

The workshop involves playing as part of an ensemble and reading music, so participants need to be fairly technically proficient on their instrument and have some experience of playing with others and reading musical notation.

Approximate/equivalent standard for guidance is Grade 3.

We can accommodate all instruments in the workshop, but please note there are only limited places for percussionists and pianists (offered on a first-come first-served basis).

There will be a sharing session at the end.

To sign up, please complete this online form.


Workshops are FREE.
