COMING MAY 3: FREE WORKSHOP
Presented by Chamber Music America
Involving Audiences in Your Creative Process
with Eli Yamin
Chamber Music America’s May 3 First Tuesdays workshop will be presented by teaching artist and jazz pianist Eli Yamin.
More and more, musicians and presenters are integrating educational and audience-engagement activities into their offerings. And like composing a piece of music, designing a successful arts-in-education presentation demands creativity.
In this session, Yamin will help participants identify their artistic strengths, offer insights into communicating with participants of all ages and levels of musical experience, and explore a variety of engaging, hands-on activities.
