Debby Korfmacher: Creative Music Workshop

During this workshop we will explore ways of creating music in a group setting. Using simple ideas and playful improvisation as a starting point, we will look at collaborative composition techniques and experience ways of creative learning through music, in which the process is more important than the result. We’ll be playing, improvising, experimenting and composing, creating 'something' out of 'nothing'. Everybody is welcome to take part in this workshop, no particular musical skills required!
