Sunday Afternoons for Kids: Musical Phrases, Written Phrases

Sunday Aug 22, 2010 12:00 PM to 2:00 PM This is a past program

In this workshop, students interact with improvising musicians using verbal and written language rather than musical instructions. Even without any previous musical background, students will become directly involved with the composition and improvisation process, combining and connecting with music and writing in new and different ways. Brendan Carn is a bassist, composer, improviser, and educator living in Boulder, Colorado.

Public programs are made possible, in part, by a major gift from Ann and Jerry Moss.

Additional support is provided by Bronya and Andrew Galef, Good Works Foundation and Laura Donnelly, an anonymous donor, the Hammer Programs Committee, and Susan and Leonard Nimoy.

The Hammer’s free collaborative workshops, presented with 826LA, are designed for groups of up to 20 students. Reservations are encouraged. Please visit workshops.826la.org or call 310-305-8418.
