Workshop For Children: Future Music

No longer available

(This session is now fully booked)

Future Music is an experimental music workshop for children between the ages of 6 to 12. It has been developed and will be run by some of the musicians that regularly play at Cafe OTO. In the workshop we will use many different materials and game plans to experiment with ways of listening, sound making and improvisation.

Previous experience or musical knowledge is not required. And all materials and instruments will be provided.

Future Music is run by Seymour Wright, Billy Steiger and Ute Kanngiesser.



Seymour Wright is a saxophonist and teacher. He has over a decade of experience of using improvisation as part of learning in a variety of educational contexts - from music workshops to university teaching. He has a PhD in Music, that explores the group learning of creative practice. 

Billy Steiger was born in Howth, and now lives in Limehouse. He has played the violin since 1993 (with breaks), and continues to do so in an expanding variety of contexts, countries, and companies. He has taught art and animation to children of all ages and their families at the BFI for the past five years.

Ute Kanngiesser is a German cellist and has lived in London for more than 10 years. She has played music since early childhood, has a background in communication studies (MA School of Education / New York University) and has trained in physical theatre and dance. She has taught at Universities in the US and Germany. And she has run music improvisation workshops for adults. As an improvising cellist she has played internationally with a wide range of musicians, dancers and film makers. Ute is the mother of a 4 year old boy and volunteers at the childrens' charity Hackney Pirates.

The workshops will run every Saturday from the 6th of June until the 11th of July.
