Great Lakes and Greater Taree Music Workshops

Region: Regional North and West | Forster
Years 3 to 10
Local arts program Music

The Great Lakes and Greater Taree Music Workshops invite students from government schools from Years 3 to 10 to participate in 4 workshop sessions. The workshops include section rehearsal, ensemble work and a performance opportunity. The workshops cater for beginners as well as more experienced players. The beginners will be supported with section practice, whereas the more experienced players will work separately from the beginners in an ensemble situation. The material covered will reflect the experience level.  

The workshops will also include a guitar and ukulele stream. Students who play chords, read tablature, play bass and/or lead are encouraged to attend. This stream is not open to beginners as a basic knowledge of chords and the skill of moving between chords quickly is recommended.

At the end of the workshops, all participants will perform as a combined ensemble. Students are encouraged to enrol in all 4 workshops; however, in some cases, enrolling in individual workshops may be an option after consultation.
