Free Music Composition workshops with Opeloge Ah Sam

Music is a universal form of self-expression that touches the everyday lives of most people.

At these free workshops we’ll explore the process of Music Composition and performance. We’ll look at how the lyrics we write and the music we compose are a representation of our thoughts, ideas and expression of our identity and hopes. Discussions will centre around issues musicians and composers face during the process of composing, rehearsals and performance.

Opeloge Ah Sam is a Samoan born composer who has worked in a range of contexts from bands, small ensembles, choirs as well as working with the Manukau Symphony, Auckland Philharmonia and the NZ Symphony Orchestra. Opeloge is passionate about how music represents who we are as people and how it can become a vehicle for positive change in our lives and communities.

Participants are encouraged to bring any music they’re currently working on as compositions and an open mind.
