Music Discovery Lab is a workshop that offers a unique opportunity for students of all ages to create and explore sound through guided play in a fun and casual environment. Drum instructor and veteran musician Jason Mullinax will introduce and demonstrate a variety of percussion and electronic instruments, then have participants try them as soloists and in ensembles. With a primary goal of encouraging creativity and experimentation, Music Discovery Lab is appropriate for students of all musical backgrounds—no experience is necessary. What does an optical theremin sound like? How many different sounds can you get from a small cymbal or simple drum? Come to the lab and find out!
My objectives with the workshop include:
· Encouraging group listening and improvisational skills
· Cultivating creative thinking and a capacity for free self-expression
· Developing students’ unique musical vocabularies
· Fostering an appreciation for the creative potential for all sound and for the music that already exists around us
