Workshops

The World Music Workshop Festival schedules up to 40 different workshops each day with over 30 world-class teachers in music, dance, voice and percussion forms from around the globe. These workshops run across multiple venues over 3 days and give you the opportunity to learn and take part, whatever your level of ability. Some workshops are able to accommodate a range of ability levels, and may run separate workshops in order to accommodate the range of ability levels. The list below shows the events that might run this year and/or were held in previous years and shows the broad range that we provide. Each year, the line-up is different, although we do have some teachers and workshops that are staples that appear every year, as well as workshops that are making their debut this year, or have appeared occasionally in previous years. We strive to support the very popular workshops whilst always seeking to introduce something new. If you look at the list of artistes/teachers, in conjunction with the list below, then you should be able to get a good idea of what will appear in our timetable at this year's event.
