LSO Discovery runs a number of practical workshops at LSO St Luke's for all Key Stages:
Music Technology Workshops
There are two music technology workshops available:
Remix the Orchestra: the class uses samples from the LSO's catalogue to create a new composition. The focus is on listening and arrangement. Suitable for Key Stage 2 through to A-level.
Audioactive: A unique and exciting workshop. Students use music technology and acoustic instruments to create a group composition, improvisation and performance. Suitable for GCSE and A-level groups. This workshop explores new instruments, electro-acoustic music, composition and improvisation.

Technology workshops can be combined with Balinese Gamelan workshops.
Balinese Gamelan Workshops
A gamelan is a set of bronze metallophones and tuned gongs indigenous to Indonesia, where it is played for temple ceremonies and to accompany dance, drama and shadow puppet plays. There are many different types; ours is from Bali. The music is formed largely of repeating patterns that can be quickly learned and played as a group by most participants regardless of age or musical experience.
Gamelan workshops are suitable for Key Stage 1 to 5. Sessions accommodate up to 30 children at LSO St Luke's.
