Creative Music Making Camp

Improvise . Express . Recording

 

Ever dream of expressing yourself on your instrument fluently, improvising & making music free from confines of notation?

Join our 3 day Creative Music Making Camp conceptualized by award-winning composer-pianist Tze Toh and conducted by soloists of TO ensemble.

Why you should join the Creative Music Camp

The workshops are specially crafted for young musicians (Suggested age for participants: 13-18). The creative music camp focus on natural music making & teaches techniques that allow you to develop your own personal expressive language. You will also learn different genres & basics of improvisation, ensemble playing, accompaniment, techniques of practicing improvisation etc.

Learn from professionals about the framework of improvisation in a fun and exciting way through internalizing rhythms, deciphering the relationship between scales & chords that make the improvisation process often so magical, yet seemingly unattainable.

By the end of the camp you will be able to develop unique individual ideas on your instrument, creating a even compelling performance/improvisation.
All participants will record their music in a studio on the last day of the camp and receive a recording in wav/MP3 format.

Day 1: Expressing

Expressing your personality on your instrument, basic concepts of improvisation and genres, developing a music vocabulary

Day 2: Ensemble

Day 3: Memories
