suddenlyLISTEN WorkshopsuddenlyLISTEN has been presenting Improvisation Workshops throughout our long history! Many of our workshops are based on the long-standing London, UK workshop facilitated by sL’s friend and concert performer Eddie Prévost. At workshops, participants are offered a safe and non-judgmental atmosphere in which to push musical limits and make music outside of personal comfort zones.

In 2017/18, sL will offer two series of workshops: those intended for emerging professionals, professionals and advanced amateurs led by a selection of our guest artists (more information to come); and our very popular series of dancer/musician sessions that we run in collaboration with Kinetic Studio of Halifax.

For Guest artist workshops, all are welcome, keeping in mind that this is a workshop for musicians with some experience. If you are new to improvised music come and listen! It’s a great chance to learn about the nuts and bolts of free music. When you’ve got a handle on it, then bring your instrument. For our dancer/musician workshops: all people who are interested in making free music are encouraged to attend, regardless of experience or musical ability: just bring yourself, an instrument if you need one, and your open ears and wide open mind! It’s a great chance for improvisers, both new and more experienced to get together, work together, listen, and learn from one another.
