Chinese Music Workshops
Centre for Music Innovations specializes in Chinese Music Workshops for organizations and schools (elementary, secondary, and post-secondary). We would love to partner with your organization to introduce Chinese instruments and repertoire.
Customized workshops for your organization
Before scheduling each workshop or workshop series, we will determine your organization’s needs. We have combinations of workshops, performances, and applications – which can be customized to your preference or school curriculum.
What will students learn through our workshops?
Our introductory workshops will teach students the following:
- Chinese musical instruments
- Sections of the Chinese orchestra
- Chinese music notation
- Chinese orchestral repertoire
For advanced students, we have a workshop series that teaches the student:
- The range of each instrument
- Special notation and ornamentation
- Extended techniques of each instrument
- Experiential learning – students can try the instruments
- Writing for the instrument/ensemble
This series can include a reading of the students’ compositions
