February Half Term

This Half Term, we're bringing you a host of fun, interactive videos to keep the whole family entertained. 

Join saxophonist Sue McKenzie for an introduction to jazz, hop aboard the Blues Train with Toby Mottershead, and learn about Koli dance and drumming with Thomas and Adie and our friends at ABC Creative Music. 

Give it a Go...Jazz with Sue McKenzie and Friends 
This interactive session from Saxophonist Sue McKenzie is primarily aimed at 4-8 year olds, but it's fun for all the family so why not give it a go?! There are four activities, but you don't have to do them all at once - you can pause and come back to the video as many times as you like. 

The Blues Train with Toby Mottershead
Take a ride on the Blues Train with Toby Mottershead, touring through different styles of blues music from early piano pieces through to gospel songs, ragtime, and boogie woogie dances. This video is suitable for all ages and, whether you are new to the genre or just interested to hear more, you will enjoy these selections performed by some of Edinburgh’s finest local musicians.
