Event description
Drum+Brass present a day of music-making workshops and discussions for musicians, teachers and organisations about Doing Music Differently

About this event

Do you want to increase your membership, plan new collaborations or widen the scope of your music-making?

This event is about how to open our doors wider and embrace ideas and players in order to bring music-making in line with modern society.

“As it currently exists, the ... music world is … suffering from a perennial and pervasive diversity crisis” Chi-chi Nwanoku
"Music plays a huge role in our modern world and it all starts with people like you. Whether you play or teach an instrument, manage a band, orchestra or music group, you are at the forefront, getting players involved, coaching and educating, programming performances and bringing audiences together. " Julie Hoggarth, D+B

With speakers Dr. Helen Minors from the Kingston School of Art, Carol Leeming MBE and guest workshop leaders, Drum+Brass are proud to invite you to this event which explores practical and equitable ways to do music inclusively.

Aimed at musicians, music teachers, music organisations and anyone with an interest in music-making, including those who may face barriers to doing so, the event aims to spark ideas and energy throughout the musical community.

This is equally an opportunity to meet colleagues, network and play, so bring your instrument and/or your voice.

Refreshments will be provided for all delegates.
