YTM offers rehearsal workshops to encourage ’used to’ musicians to have a go in an unthreatening environment. We welcome all instruments – string, woodwind, brass, percussion, guitar, keyboard … Grade 3 / 4 and higher is the target level for participation, and an ability to read music is an advantage.
We appreciate that making music again can require some courage so please get in contact if you have any questions. YouTooMusicians are very welcoming and have some great stories to encourage you. So be brave !
We will work together to play simple, well-known music for multiple instrument parts. Examples from recent workshops include:
– Jupiter arrangement from Holst’s ‘Planets’ suite
– Dreamed a Dream from Les Miserables
– Theme from the Eurovision Song Contest
– Medley of Christmas Carols
– Just the Way You Are (Bruno Mars)
– Make You Feel My Love (Adele)
– Run (Snow Patrol)
– James Bond Theme
Due to coronavirus, our workshops from March 2020 will be virtual with the launch of YouTooMusic Online. YTM Online Sessions will be advertised on Facebook, Instagram and by email to those who are already part of the community. New musicians are very welcome to join in the fun !
The first two pieces we will be looking to record together using these master tracks to guide us are the James Bond theme and Run, by Snow Patrol.
