Schools can choose to do anything from a single workshop, to a ‘residency’ whereby James and the musicians work in the school for a week with the children doing workshops and open rehearsals culminating in a performance of James painting live to music (see our choice of programmes in the menu). The children’s art work and own performances are also shown to parents on the final day.
Painting to music workshops with James Mayhew. James can work with up to about 20 children per session with recorded music. Children learn how they can respond to music through art and in the process get to know the music really well. This is a very popular workshop with primary schools as a lead in to a performance of James painting to live music at the school. Please see James' website for more details about his workshops.
Workshops with the musicians. They will play violin, harpsichord, talk and get the children involved singing, clapping, miming and taking part in the music.
Performance with Realm of Music and James Mayhew painting live to music - please get in touch!
