Our Orchestra Outreach workshops kicked off yesterday with a full on day at Liberton High School. Great enthusiasm and participation from pupils and teachers alike. Even the art teacher joined in, a great sign of a collaborative approach from the creative arts at the school.
Great passion from the young people for music and for creativity and a warm welcome for us. It seems to me that the relaxed and open attitude of the music staff at Liberton leaves so much space for students to take their own initiative to be creative.
James, Viloin: It’s my kind of orchestra. I’ve done classical music, but I’m more into Indie, Alternative, Rock, Heavy Metal, Musicals, Jazz…
Scott, Teacher: Sometimes we can forget how taking things back to basics of composition can really help to inspire the less engaged students. This simple practical workshop really did that.
