Sonic Smithy is both a student musical ensemble and a creative sound workshop devoted exclusively to the living music and great musicians of our time and place. (2011, NYC, USA) The ensemble encourages students to explore many styles of music composition, performance and improvisation. Sonic Smithy aims to encourage students to take advantage of their creative skills as arrangers and improvisers at any point in their journey toward technical mastery of their instruments, with the understanding that an awareness of their expressive needs will drive their practice and inspire the acquisition of new skills and artistic dreams. The ensemble aims to emphasize this creative process in order to foster an open attitude about the many ways music can be conceived, explored, composed and performed, at any level, and in any genre.
