The Art of Music

The Art of Music

with Sue Goode and Philip Milburn

A playshop which explores the creative and therapeutic relationship between improvised music and visual art.  A sociable day of fun, relaxation and self-expression.

Every person and their creativity is unique. This playshop is an opportunity to journey into yourself, to allow unconscious thoughts and feelings to emerge, and to identify and release judgements and creative blocks. Then, feeling supported by a healing group process, you can discover your own unique musical, vocal and artistic skills and expression.

You don’t need to call yourself a singer, musician, artist or painter to enjoy this workshop. It’s open to anyone, including complete beginners. Just be willing to discover and explore your natural musicianship and artistic creativity ! Anyone can do it and you can’t get it wrong !

We shall….

  • Create intuitive, spontaneous sound and music using voices and easy-to-play instruments
  • Respond artfully as we play, and also record the music and respond while we play it back
  • Allow the music that we create to inspire images, patterns, textures and colourful expressions of the inner sounds that we hear and feel. A range of art materials and techniques will be used.
  • Meet other musical artists, inspire & encourage each other, learn new skills and build confidence
  • Explore different starting points, then travel on creative journeys together
  • Your visual expressions of sound & music are yours to take home !

Come and explore the art of music … and the music of art

Art materials & instruments provided. Feel free to bring instruments if you have them.

This workshop would be suitable for CPD hours for professional practitioners.
