Young instrumentalists grades 6-12 will collaborate to create improvisational music performances. Teaching artists will guide participants on a tour of a variety of improvisatory approaches and help them develop their own shared musical language.

Participants will learn musical concepts, break down how different aspects of a performance affect the audience, interrogate their musical preferences and be a part of some engrossing jam sessions.

No previous experience necessary. All instruments welcome.



In partnership with C4K (Computers4Kids), the MRC is putting on its first ever summer Soundwalk Workshop. Participants will spend time at both the MRC and C4K, as well at the IX Art Park, capturing sounds and making recordings to build their own unique sound experiences. By reconceptualizing their audio environments, students will be creating soundtracks to a simple stroll in the park!

Key concepts include:

-On-site recording with handheld devices

-Basic microphone techniques and recording

-Basic audio engineering

-Use of a DAW (Garageband)

-Recontextualizing the sonic space (i.e. soundtracks)

-Basic writing skills – providing directions for participants in following their soundwalk
