MASTERCLASSES

In a musical round the world trip, we’ll listen to, learn about and create the basic elements of a variety of music styles. Ever wondered how and why Oriental, Klezmer, Latin American, Balkan or Celtic music sounds the way it does? In this workshop, you’ll experience new worlds of possibilities and sounds for your instrument. You’ll be provided with sheet music, as well as other musical elements and fun activities to assist you on you first steps as an improviser and world music traveller.

In addition, we have Australia’s top exponent of Flamenco Guitar, Damian Wright, in Tamworth for the weekend offering his knowledge and experience acquired through many years in Spain and performing throughout the country.

For instrumentalists who are approximately Grade 4 + AMEB
