Improvise! New Ways​ to Play

Here's our improvising group at our recent Christchurch workshop. Heaps of fun! We were thrilled with the way everyone got stuck right in, and the supportive and friendly atmosphere.


Come and join our next one in Blenheim on 10 June! We've got a great session planned!

What the musicians said

I just loved every minute of the course. You are such an engaging and enthusiastic and diplomatic presenter!

As a beginner, and an old one at that, I was very hesitant to enrol, but you created such a welcoming and non- threatening environment that I was more than comfortable muddling through my mistake-ridden attempts. It was lots and lots of fun.

I will be following up all the information you sent through, and will definitely be a “returning guest” for your future courses.

Julie Hutton, flutist

I was very happy as this programme nurtured both beginners, intermediate players, and the more advanced. Cathy was so supportive of all of us and helped us determined by our skill and knowledge. I liked how she was always open to answer questions on the topics, and how to improve.
