A Workshop Day
Alive workshop day takes the momentum from a morning performance
of concert 1 or 2 and brings it into the classroom by way
of a workshop that ends up as an original composition. Typically,
most of the school would be included in hour sessions as the
group divides off to accommodate the needs of the school.
The day will culminate in a special performance, where each
class or year group will perform their own compositions to
each other alongside the Music Alive musicians.

African Drumming, Brazilian Samba, Jazz/Blues or Tango.
day is very inclusive and is a really hands-on experience
for every child involved. It is a special opportunity for
children to see how music is conceived, developed and then
performed alongside professionals.
