February 3rd - 10th, 2018

"In this workshop we will immerse ourselves in the creative process of making music. During our week together we will find new ways to unleash our creative potential, and to discover and develop our individual voices as creative artists. This workshop is open to both amateur and professional musicians in any genre (the ability to read music is not required). Michael will customize the workshop on an ongoing basis to address the needs and wishes of each and every participant. Time will be divided between individual and group activities as needed. Tilted Arc (pianist Sophia Vastek, and electroacoustic composer/saxophonist Sam Torres) will also be on faculty to coach and perform participant’s works for any combination of piano, sax and electronics."
