‘JukeBox’ 

a mixed ensemble music-making opportunity

If you enjoy playing an instrument or singing, are aged 8-18 and would like to do it in a group with others like you - JukeBox is a great opportunity. We welcome all instruments, abilities and backgrounds.

What will participants / members be doing?

We will inspire you to improve your music skills and, by exploring different styles of music, learn how to creatively apply those music skills when you play together as a group.

  • Discover new pieces of music through a mixture of music notation and learning by ear

  • Get creative with more improvised and memorised music

  • Perform music to suit your level of playing

  • Explore styles from jazz to classical, musical theatre to pop

 

When?

May/June Half Term 2021 - Virtual content available for the week, with a virtual recording completed at the end of the week using participants' contributions. Attendees will also receive a certificate of participation.

1-1 tutoring slots are available over Zoom during the week.

INFORMATION FOR PARENTS / CARERS

How much time will the virtual sessions take in half term?

The half term challenges are open ended with a submission deadline on the Friday afternoon - students can spend as long as they wish on the challenges. There are five different pieces with a video tutorial for each, which students encouraged to learn to play the music and then improvise their own. Ideally students will try all five challenges, and will complete either an audio or video recording of all five.

 

We will provide guidance on how to submit video recordings during the week.

There will be a finished compiled recording that people can view online a couple of weeks after half term (once it’s been edited together). Sadly we cannot make an everyone together ‘live’ opportunity this time around.

Will I need Zoom? 

You will not need Zoom to watch the video content, however you will require Zoom if you wish to book a fifteen minute one-to-one lesson with a tutor during the week (available on a first come first served basis). We will have appropriate safeguarding measures in place to make sure this is secure.
