Music for People

Since 1988 the non-profit organisation “Music for People” in the USA has been organising and coordinating workshops and music improvising events for people, who want to develop and share free music making and singing

 

Music for People was founded in 1986 by the Cellist David Darling (1941 -2021*) and the flautist Bonnie Insull. They created new ways of perceiving, expressing and sharing music. Man and music are integral to the Philosophy of Music for People.

 

An artistic attitude of respect, gaiety, humour and being in the present moment has been established over the years. This attitude encourages musical initiative and cherishes the devotion to music as a result of it.

 

Music for people is a platform for experienced musicians and non-professional music lovers to meet, share their love to music, learn from each other and deepen their ability to play music freely.

 

From this protected environment of tolerance there can evolve a creative space which opens up an intuitive access to mutual music making, improvising and developing a personal musical expression.

 

Music for People is for all those who want to embark on this wonderful journey.

 

Since more than 20 years, Music for People seminars are taking place in Switzerland too. Since 2015 the organisation Music for People Europe is organizing and supporting MfP Seminars and the «Musicainship and Leadership Program» MLP in Switzerland and also other european countries.
