Find Your Talent with Arun Ghosh

Creative music composition workshops in East London schools

1st June 2010 - 30th June 2010

Young people from two Bow schools participated in creative composition workshops led by clarinettist and composer Arun Ghosh and multi percussionist Renu Hossain this summer.  Taking influences from Indian classical music to contemporary rock music as the basis, the project encouraged participants to compose and perform their own music, created in response to feelings and emotions.  The project spanned three weeks of after school and in school time workshops in June at Malmesbury Primary School and Bow Boys Secondary School, leading to a shared performance for families and friends.

Project aims included increased understanding of creative composition, listening, and performance skills, leadership development and team work.
