What Can I Do With My Music Trolley?!
November 17th 2016, 2-5pm in Salisbury.
Do you even know what’s lurking at the bottom of your music trolley?
Every instrument in the music trolley is a real instrument with a correct playing technique, traditional rhythms and genres of music that rely on its sound.
In this inventive, humorous and interactive session (featuring a real, wild music trolley) delegates will learn music and rhythms from Africa, South America and the Middle East which can all sound great on instruments found at the very bottom of a long-neglected music trolley.
Full workshop notes are provided which include detailed instrument techniques and notation of all the material used in the workshop.
In this session you will:
- Learn the correct playing technique and traditional rhythms for a wide variety of ‘music trolley’ instruments ‘
- Create ensembles using ‘music trolley’ instruments and develop your knowledge of how instruments are grouped in particular world music genres
