Youth Music Theatre UK Workshops

Birmingham Conservatoire, Friday 8 July, 11.30-12.50 & 13.30-14.50

How do you get an audience hanging on to your every note? How do you communicate emotions so the audience really feel it in the same way you do?

This workshop will look at a very different type of improvisation – improvising mini scenarios communicating human emotions, it will be very dynamic and great fun. Amongst the tutors leading the workshop will be New Orleans Jazz trumpeter/singer Abram Wilson, an up and coming British jazz talent.

Any instrumentalist wanting to expand their performance skills and explore the relationship between acting and playing is welcome to take part.
