Music Box – Applications


We are seeking musicians to take part in one-off workshops for our Under 5s music programme – The Music Box. We are looking for players of all instruments and traditions who want to gain workshop experience to work with our Music Box Leaders for two ¾ hour sessions on Saturday mornings in Hackney between 9:00am and 10:30am. Players would need to bring 3 contrasting pieces for young children to listen and dance to (not nursery rhyme based) with improvisation skills and workshop experience being an advantage but not essential, just a willingness to get involved!
