Creative Music Workshop
Westerlies Fest includes a unique weekend music workshop taught by The Westerlies and festival artists. The workshop is open to high school and college students of all instruments, experience levels, and musical backgrounds.
The Westerlies' highly interactive teaching methods will address general musicianship, technique, ensemble training, composition, improvisation, ear training, daily “listening parties”, and professional practices. The workshop will culminate in a concert with the Westerlies, featuring the student ensembles and students’ own original compositions.
Workshop attendees will also be granted free admission to all festival events and discounted tickets for their family members.
