ABOUT THE PROGRAM

The Creative Music Workshop (CMW) is a 8-day intensive program where the ensemble is the classroom and improvisation is more than a style, it’s a path for learning. CMW offers two streams; The full day Core Program and The Creative Process Program which runs for the mornings only.

Creative Process (mornings only): The Creative Music Workshop (CMW) 'Creative Process' is where creative minds of all disciplines, including music, dance and visual arts, learn to deepen their creative practice. Attendees learn the fundamental principles of the CMW Creative Process through a range of collective and individual exercises such as improvisation, movement, listening and communication. Students work with each other and the CMW faculty to explore risk taking, fear and self consciousness in relation to their creative process. The program passes on knowledge not only about what it means to be a musician, dancer, etc., but what it means to be a creative person.

Core Program (full day): The CMW Core Program offers artists of all disciplines and skill levels, aged 15* or older, the knowledge and experience required to take their artistic practice to the next level. In addition to learning the fundamentals of the CMW Creative Process, students play with each other for up to eight hours a day and receive intensive instruction from a renowned faculty as well as performance opportunities at the TD Halifax Jazz Festival.

Bonus: All Core Program full day students receive an All Events Pass to the 2019 TD Halifax Jazz Festival and will perform during the CMW final concert on Sunday July 14th.
