ENFIELD DOORSTEP ORCHESTRA

If you're not going out, join in ...

So, it seems we're all confined to barracks for a while and, seeing as (to quote Chuck Berry) we have no particular place to go, let's pool our musical skills and join our new Enfield Doorstep Orchestra.

 

What we are doing ...

We've formed a new 'virtual orchestra' to include 'virtually' any instrument and voice you may have. We're providing opportunities for Enfield musicians to play and record audio and video with us online to produce fun and inspiring clips that we can share and enjoy. We want as many to join as possible.

How we are doing it ...

We're posting updates and instructions on the Love Your Doorstep Enfield Facebook Group and also on our Four Hills Music Enfield Facebook Group . Contact us giving your name, instrument/voice and email address and we'll send details.

In brief, we record a 'click track' (rhythm, bass line, guide melody) and send it to you, along with music relevant for your instrument. You practise it and record yourself on video, listening to the click track on headphones to keep in time and pitch. We collate everyone's recordings centrally and mix down a collaborative audio track and make a music video from what you send us.

How good do I have to be? ...

Anything goes. We can hide or 'fix' any duff notes (lol) and just let us know if you feel you need a simpler part than those we make available. Hey, we can even help with a spot of online coaching too!

How much does it cost? ...

Nothing. Zilch. Niente. Nada, in terms of making the video. But, if you would like more formal music lessons online, we can put you in touch with independent professional music coaches who can help you online during the current crisis.

Who are we? ...

This is an independent project for the purpose of encouraging, entertaining and inspiring the people of Enfield. In 'normal' times, we run some excellent local community music projects that include Enfield Film Orchestra, North London BrassEnglish Jazz Orchestra and North London Singers.

We are a team of professional musicians, instrumentalists and singers, with decades of experience. We love Enfield and, in these difficult times,  we want to use our talents to help yours shine brightly and to bring hope.

Next steps ...

Email us on martyn.stogden@yahoo.co.uk or contact us on this link to let us know you're interested and for further details. Let us know your name, instrument or voice and approximate level (if you're under age 18, you'll need to get permission from an adult).

If you're not going out, join in ...
