Music Discovery Lab is a workshop that offers a unique opportunity for students aged 7-12 to create and explore sound through guided play in a fun and casual environment. Drum instructor and veteran musician Jason Mullinax will introduce and demonstrate a variety of percussion and electronic instruments, then have participants try them as soloists and in ensembles. With a primary goal of encouraging creativity and experimentation, Music Discovery Lab is appropriate for students of all musical backgrounds — no experience is necessary. How many different sounds can you get from a small cymbal or simple drum? Come to the lab and find out! Registration is limited to 6 participants, so contact us ASAP to reserve your child’s spot!
Goals for the workshop include:
- Encouraging group listening and improvisational skills
- Cultivating creative thinking and a capacity for free self-expression
- Developing students’ unique musical vocabularies
- Fostering an appreciation for the creative potential for all sound and for the music that already exists around us
