All levels of ability and experience are welcome & rewarded
No need to book just turn up
The current session format is:
A series of small group improvisations. Duration 5 -10 minutes each.
There is some conversation & discussion between the pieces.
There is a social break of 15 minutes at the midway point.
The starting point is that there are no workshop type strategies or games, scores or contemporary compositions. The musicians play free improvisation in music in their own time
The above having been said, the January 15th 2019 session featured the workshop piece `step in step out` for more information, click here
