Emerald Music Week is a music activity course designed for young musicians of all standards aged 6-18.

The students are taught by excellent, lively and qualified staff. The courses are very successful because the emphasis is on learning through fun.

There are two concerts during the week, a solos concert where everyone has the chance to perform a solo and a presentation concert at the end of the course to provide an opportunity to perform new music learned throughout the week. Most students find that they make huge progress throughout the week and gain confidence in all aspects of music making. It is amazing how much music can be learnt and how many friendships are formed in an intensive week of music making.

The junior course is aimed at children aged six or above who enjoy singing and listening to music. They may be beginners on an instrument or may be looking to take up an instrument at a later date.  The children have a busy week composing, listening to music, learning the recorder, singing songs, making instruments, creating artwork and playing games. They are joined by the older students to create a presentation at the end of the week.

music week 4 2012

The senior course is designed for instrumentalists and singers. They play and sing in ensembles and are given opportunities to work in small groups with tutors to create duets and trios. There are composition and improvisation workshops and everyone joins up for choir each day.

Each day there are  games outside so that everyone has a break from music making for a short while.

Charlotte from Primo Music will be joining us to lead a taster course for children aged 3-5 and to provide a morning session for the under 11’s on Music Week.  The children will explore song and body movement to provide strong foundations for pulse, pitch, musical structure, harmony and melodic lines, but most important of all they will have lots of fun whilst developing musicianship. There will also be an opportunity to play unusual instruments from Finland and Indonesia. It is a great way to introduce children, both lively and introvert, to the love of music, rhythm and singing.
