Our Workshops are designed to be fun and cater for all ages and levels of experience.
Whether or not they think they don't have a musical bone in their body – we will find it!
And for those who might have more musical experience but want to pushing themselves out of their 'comfort zone' in the spirit of fun.
You team will be working together in a non-competitive safe-space and invited to have a laugh and take on the fun physical movement and musical challenges, designed to foster personal development of each individuals’ 'musical creativity'.
Essentially the workshops are designed to relieve any preconceptions of people who have been lead to believe they ‘are NOT' creative of musical. Creativity is a fundamental part of everyday for everyone – we are born with it, it just needs to be explored and practiced to flourish.
