Bring along an instrument and learn how to arrange for beginner and easy parts, how to simplify songs and music into parts and still make it sound good and how to write for the instruments available in the class. There will be a chance to explore the BBC Ten Pieces III and their differentiated parts.

As there will be access to a computer suite and iPads, take the chance to learn and use free notation software such as Garageband, Finale and Noteflight, similar to Sibelius to arrange music.

Session Leader: Cheryl Hooker-Blake
Cheryl regularly arranges music and conducts youth ensembles including Kent Music’s Maidstone Primary Orchestra with 138 young musicians from 7 Maidstone primary schools who came together for a day of music making last year. She delivers samba workshops on behalf of Bloco Fogo in numerous settings across the South East and Djembe drumming lessons in schools. Cheryl is a multi-instrumentalist originally specialising in the flute and percussion. She studied Music and Music Technology at Keele University and then continued her studies at Goldsmiths University on a Community Music Workshop Skills Course.
