Our Performance Workshop is an introduction to our super fun ensemble classes. They involve students getting together to learn and play songs in a variety of styles – one of the coolest parts of studying at AIM. At Make Music Fest, you’ll join one for the day!

Whether you’re an aspiring vocalist, instrumentalist or keen to experiment with Afro-Latin sounds, you’ll have a blast. Bring your instrument and be ready for an incredible day of music at AIM.

We have amazing and accomplished AIM graduates to guide you on the day. Dominic Cabusi and Gian Timothy Gho are both gun musicians who’ve done incredible things since graduating from AIM.
