MUSIC EDUCATION AND WORKSHOPS

As part of our commitment to make live music more accessible to young people, and to give them some practical insights into music-making, we aim to present workshops by some of our visiting musicians, both in local schools and in other venues.

We would be delighted to hear from local schools, teachers, parents or school students with suggestions for future music workshops so that we can try to build these into our future plans. Please contact John Fox (tel. 01721 729984 or email contact@musicinpeebles.org.uk) to discuss your ideas.

Details of forthcoming workshops will be posted on this page as they are arranged.

For its visit to Peebles, the ensemble will be at full strength, with 13 musicians visiting the town. As well as making for a thrillling evening concert, this gives the possibility of presenting workshops in every Peebles school in one day.

Workshops with The Scottish Wind Ensemble will take place on Tuesday 3rd February 2015 as follows. In the morning, the ensemble will divide into three smaller groups, which will present workshops in each of the three primary schools.
