These workshops introduce children to making music as they learn to make their own works, take part in warm-up exercises, and rehearse two newly-commissioned nautical songs to commemorate the 400th anniversary of the Mayflower’s pioneering voyage. The project culminates in a group performance. The workshops are designed to support Key Stage 2 curriculum, but can be enjoyed by all ages.
