Morning Mixed Instrument
Location Gorgie Dalry Ch
Day/Time Wed, 10-12
Latest update 28 May '23 10pm

In a mixed instrument class, participants learn tunes and collaborate on arranging the tunes in an exciting way. It's less about the individual and more about learning to play with other instruments and being creative in an ensemble. During the course we'll be learning tunes and exploring arrangements, with the possibility of performance at a later date.

Booking is through the Scots Music Group web site. If you have any problems, let me know.

This is a "hybrid" class, meaning that the class will be conducted at Gorgie/Dalry church hall, but people will also have the opportunity to join online using Zoom. You may use the button below to join.
