We energise band programs

Students are provided with an opportunity to see what an expressive performance looks like in real life. We present incursions for schools, community music ensembles, conservatories, & universities.

 

We do it all

Injecting life into performances, we unleash the expressive being that lives inside of everyone. We provide a collaborative workshop focusing on performance techniqueimprovisation & arrangement masterclasses, and schools concerts.

 

Who we look for

We work with band directors & principals who want to enrich their greater school community and boost their music program.

4/ Can anyone join the online community?

No. It is exclusively for band directors and heads of music that we've had the pleasure of working with. Your fellow music staff are also invited.

2/ How long is the workshop?

1-2hrs for the collab. performance workshop. The improvisation & arranging masterclasses are 2hrs long.

5/ How much does it cost per student?

We quote a fee. You can then recoup costs in the manner most suitable to your context. As a guide, you can expect to budget for around $10 / student depending on the information provided in FAQ #1.

3/ How long is the concert?

60mins in length. We can split this up into 2x30mins with a quick changeover. This is most common in primary schools when performing in smaller spaces.

Absolutely. We've scheduled for this so that your usual school day doesn't get disrupted.
