Create, Collaborate and Play
A creative music project for young musicians (age 8 -14 yrs old) who already have skills on an instrument and wish to broaden their musical horizons and explore creative/composition ideas in a fun and relaxed collaborative setting.
A band of talented young players from across Islington schools and beyond play alongside three professional musicians on this two-day creative composition project. This innovative new ensemble, mixing band and classical instruments into one exciting musical pot, work together to create a new piece of music from scratch.

Why come? (More about the creative process)
During the day the guest musicians/workshop leaders support the children in developing new skills in improvising, creating, and composing music as a band. The participants not only use their own instruments throughout the workshop but also take part in a variety of vocal and percussion activities to help create ideas for their new composition. (Notation reading not required, just bring your ideas, enthusiasm and your instrument!). This project will be led by the 3 members of the innovative contemporary trio Quest Ensemble.
