Tagné Tebu was born in Cameroon and is a composer, multi instrumentalist and educator. This unique afternoon is aimed at musicians of any discipline and level- particularly tailored for classical and other musicians who have never improvised before to begin in a supportive, collaborative environment. We will not be focusing so much on scales and modes but more on the expressive, listening and psychological aspects of improvisation. Experienced improvisers will also find this workshop valuable so all are welcome.
Tagné’s music incorporates African, Latin, Jazz, Arabic and South East Asian influences and his compositional and improvisational style reflects this in the way he works with fellow musicians from many disciplines in a laid back, open way.
We will have a long lunch cooked by Heather (who runs Classical Evolution) of soup and home made bread where we can exchange ideas, then at the end of the day have a public jam where other musicians can join us.
This will be a “pay as you feel” day- suggested donation £25 but you’re welcome to pay less or more depending on your situation. We want these events to be open to all regardless of your financial situation.
People who would like to observe but not play are also very welcome.
Player places are limited to 10 so that everyone receives the full benefit of the workshop.
All instruments and abilities welcome. To book a place, click the link above or email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 07517 309024 if you have any questions.
