Mr. Dunn led a Juilliard Creative Classroom workshop on ensemble skills, exploring ways to be inventive with music whilst having lots of fun rehearsing as a group.

See below some student testimonials: 

Stuti (Year 7 plays the Piano) – “Working with Steve from the Juilliard school gave me the chance to experiment, explore and have fun with different ways of playing the music.”

Rayan (Year 7 plays the Trumpet) – “It was fun working with someone from Juilliard all together. It was also great to hear the trombone being played because I play the trumpet and it is part of the brass family.”

Aiza (Year 8 plays the Guitar) – “The workshop was very inclusive and interactive. It was a new experience for me – I have never done anything like this before!” 

Sebastien (Year 12 plays the Clarinet) – “The workshop was an enlightening experience; it allowed me to gain a deeper understanding of the finer details of the music we are rehearsing.”

Kylie (Year 8 plays the Trombone) – “The different ways we learned to articulate music when playing was really interesting and hearing Mr. Steve demonstrating on the trombone was great!”
