Come and Play!: Kids Composition Workshop
Gate 13, Royal Parade
Join us for a fun filled kids workshop led by freelance percussionist Leah Scholes, in which participants create and then ‘perform’ to other workshop attendees a short piece using the Federation Handbells, an interactive component of our new exhibition, How it plays: Innovations in percussion.
No prior knowledge of music is required for this interactive workshop, although those with musical backgrounds can incorporate their contributions into the finished piece. The Museum welcomes children aged 5 – 12 years of age to attend. Parents or guardians are required to be in attendance for each child.
Leah Scholes is a long term performer of the Federation Handbells. Her performance resume includes Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, Orchestra Victoria, soloist at BIFEM, Sound Collectors duet, Barking Spider theatre, the Flying Tapirs, Speak Percussion, and work with professional orchestras in New Zealand and Malaysia.
This free event forms part of the public programs for How it plays: Innovations in percussion, currently on display at the Grainger Museum. For bookings, please see our Eventbrite page.
