The Funky Fingers piano ensembles meet once per term to learn and perform a selection of repertoire for many hands. The workshop lasts half a day, with students learning their music in small groups before coming together as a large ensemble. Participants will also take part in an exciting array of practical activities to improve notational, technical and aural skills.
There are two Funky Fingers workshops, each aimed at students of different levels. The morning workshop is suitable for pre-ABRSM grade students who are familiar with the five finger position, and the afternoon workshop is suitable for ABRSM Grade 1 - 5 level students.
Participation costs AED150, which covers all musical resources. Places are limited for this event and it always fills up quickly, so be sure to keep an eye out for registration opening.
