What We are Doing

FREE drop-in “taster” class for CEL 1

CEL = Creative Ensemble Lab

  • Group lesson for students where the emphasis is on improvisation and composition.
  • Any instrument, any age (adults find it just as fun as kids!)
  • CEL 1 – very accessible for ages 3 – 10, but older beginners enjoy it too
  • CEL 2 – reading music is a pre-requisite: we will write down the improvisations to create musical compositions, and learn something about music theory as we work.
