We offer a variety of workshops and projects, suitable for a range of ages and running from half days to a week or more.
The ethos is simple - to create a rich, rewarding collective experience in which everyone is equal, uniqueness is celebrated and the language is music. Our workshops and projects offer an opportunity to try something new, to build confidence in expression and in playing your part in a team. Everyone has a chance to discover their voice and musical talent.
All workshops culminate in a performance, an opportunity to share beyond the group; whether it be to parents, teachers or other children. This cements the value of everything learnt and can form lifelong memories for both performers and audience.
Please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions.

Our tutors are trained and experienced in Apple Logic, Garageband and more.
MOBILE RECORDING STUDIO: SCHOOL ALBUM
We set up a professional recording studio in your school to capture the wonderful work of choir, band, orchestra or individual classes. This can be combined with vocal and instrumental work to prepare music to record - starting as simply as a morning's singing and recording to a backing track in the afternoon.
Children gain real life experience of a recording session and something to keep forever (and listen to when they're grown up!).
Suits whole school
Condensed versions of our weekly lessons. Our drumming workshops explore the rhythms of West Africa, along with movement, song, valuable musical activities, folklore and more. Children compose, improvise, work as a team and take part in a memorable performance. FULL DETAILS
TUNED PERCUSSION - Glocks & more
A great foundation for budding pianists and pretty much all other instruments. Children will explore rhythm, melody, harmony, notation and more. FULL DETAILS
FOUND SOUNDS - JUNK ORCHESTRA
Instruments are everywhere and they needn't cost the earth! Using ladders, dustbins and even the kitchen sink, children explore the amazing music that can be made from junk - hip hop, dance, breakbeat, mash-ups and more. Children can also make their own unique and wonderful instruments with which to perform and take home.
Make music with nothing but our bodies! Children connect directly with rhythmic patterns and songs, movement, chants and more. Plenty of opportunities to create, improvise and lead, whilst working towards a physical and musical performance.
These musical, colourful, physical and creative workshops are thrilling and unique. Children will learn the beauty of playing their part in a team through performing, composing and improvising. A fantastic way to improve group cohesion.
