Event description

Description

Six sessions to explore the rich interconnection between music and spirituality through the ages. We will listen together to a wide selection of music from different eras and cultures, both live and recorded, both vocal and instrumental. There will be the opportunity to join in with some simple chant. Does it matter as we listen how rooted we are in a particular culture or belief system? We will have a chance to explore how we experience and respond to it. Can music evoke something awe-inspiring and numinous that takes us beyond ourselves, or deeper into ourselves?

All welcome – no musical knowledge or religious beliefs needed to participate – just a healthy curiosity and open ears.

The course is presented and facilitated by Matthew Heyse-Moore, a Stroud-based musician, teacher and composer who is passionate to share his love of music and spirituality. He has been leading regular weekly groups to support people to deepen into music since 2009.

"Matthew is one of the best teachers I've ever had. He is knowledgeable in the history and context of musical composition as well as being a talented pianist and clarinettist himself. His teaching manner is courteous, his approach to a wide range of students is thoughtful and confidence inspiring and his preparation is thorough. He has excellent group as well as one to one skills, able to guide a subject through a session in a stimulating way, whilst inviting students to participate without loss of structure and coherence. Finally, Matthew has the ability to teach a mixed musical ability group, from the novice to the knowledgeable, without risking alienation of either. He is truly skilled." FB
