Orchestras Live is delighted to be continuing our partnership with Spitalfields Music to provide training opportunities for aspiring music leaders.
Skills Lab: Creative Communities, is a practical training academy for musicians of all genres who want to develop skills in creative music-making and leadership with a wide range of communities. Following our successful Trainee Music Leader programme in 2019/20, we are co-producing an online Skills Lab focused on co-creativity and inclusive practice, on 8 June 2021.
Led by experienced music leader James Redwood and trained music therapist and principal flute of Manchester Camerata, Amina Hussain, participants will explore communication, co-creation and agency in creative music-making alongside a range of games and exercises to build confidence in delivering creative composition sessions.
Skills Lab is relevant to musicians working in a range of genres and contexts and provides an excellent opportunity to network and share skills with peers. We are delighted that our first Trainee Music Leader, Alice Phelps, will share her experiences of the traineeship and what it has meant for her professional development.
Following the Skills Lab, we will be launching recruitment for our second placement for a Trainee Music Leader based in the north of England.
