Sound Lab

What is Sound Lab?

Sound Lab is a New Creative Ensemble for 8-14 yr olds that meets monthly at both Fitzmaurice Primary School in Bradford on Avon and Dauntsey Academy Primary School in West Lavington (see below for session dates).

The ensemble is designed to foster musical creativity through improvisation and composition. Participants have the opportunity to explore sound and develop new pieces of music as part of a group. This is an exciting way to make music, learn and make new friends!

You don't even need to play a musical instrument to be part of it!

WHAT TO EXPECT AT A SOUND LAB SESSIONS!

A Sound Lab session offers the opportunity to work as part of a group to create original music. Using both traditional and electronic instruments you will be guided by 3 experienced music leaders to bring together musical ideas. You will be able to develop new skills in composing, improvisation and playing in different styles.

We will decide on a theme in the first session and build up ideas around this theme and let the music lead the way and see where we end up!

  •  your instrument (if you play one)
  • A drink and a snack for break time.
