Devon's folk arts charity Wren Music is launching a new series of Make Music With Wren workshops for adults on Tuesday mornings in 2013.
Whatever your age, you are never too old to pick up an instrument! Making music is fun and an excellent way of exercising the mind, as well as making new friends, and provides opportunities for people to develop life skills relevant to the world of work.
Wren Music will provide a wide variety of musical instruments, including guitars, basses, fiddles, concertinas, and hand drums, and no experience of playing any instrument is necessary. For people with their own instruments, all acoustic ones are welcome - and there are no auditions. Tunes will be learnt by ear, and no music reading skills will be needed.
The Make Music sessions will be guided by professional musician David Faulkner from the Okehampton-based folk arts charity Wren Music, who has many years experience of leading community-based music projects across Devon and further afield.
The workshops will be held at the Church Hall, Market Street, Okehampton EX20 1HN, from 10.00 to 11.30am on 8th, 15th and 29th January, and 5th and 12th February.
Taking part in the Make Music With Wren sessions is completely free of charge, thanks to the support of the Okehampton United Charity and Devon County Council, and funding from the National Lottery through the Big Lottery Fund.
