TIMBRO MUSIC ACADEMY has announced it will be renamed Timbre music Academy in the recognition of its dedication to providing opportunities for students and teachers to learn the craft of music.
The decision comes after a consultation on the name was completed, following the success of the Timbre Festival, the event which brought together local and international talent from across the United Kingdom, to present their work and share their experiences in a festival environment.
Timbre Music has already produced an extensive range of educational programs for schools, and now, the organisation will also be expanding its offering to music teachers.
The organisation’s director of operations, Timbre Academy, said: “The Timbre festival is a testament to the diverse range of people that make up the Timble community, and the support we have received for its success is testament to our commitment to supporting our local community through the festival and supporting its continued growth.”
It is with great pride that we have now decided to rename the festival to Timbres Academy, a festival of the arts which has provided a safe and supportive environment for musicians and music teachers to work alongside and collaborate.
“Timbre Festival founder Peter Brown said: “”Timbre has provided many of us with an opportunity to learn how to play, so it’s a shame that this has been taken away from the festival, but at the same time we will work hard to ensure this doesn’t happen again.”
We have a number of artists coming to the festival for the first time, and we are delighted that Timbre will be the first festival to offer this opportunity to local artists and music educators, which will be a fantastic benefit for local communities and our local economy.
“The festival will be held on April 4-6 in the town of Weatherford, in the County Durham.
The festival is one of a number which will offer opportunities for music teachers and music students to explore the wider range of skills they have, and to engage in new musical opportunities, including performance, recording and writing.
Timbres Festival co-founder, Tim Breed said:”We are delighted to be extending our festival programme to a number other locations around the country.
“We will continue to support local music education by hosting several workshops on how to write, record and perform, and will be looking to support music teachers in further activities and events, including a workshop on how children can learn music through a video game.”
As we have already been to the UK for festivals, we will be hosting a series of concerts in support of Timbre and its work in this country, including one in Manchester at the Royal Festival Hall on February 10.
“Timbre Music Academy will be located at 631-941-2739 in the Timbregore, where you can also visit the festival website.
