Fun creativity & music
Young, old, and anything in between can transcend the barriers of age, economics, race, language, and physical challenge when we experience and perform music together. When everything aligns in time and space with the pulse and the beating of hearts being in the moment together, that's music, that's life. In the music workshops, we will be looking at the fundamental ingredients of music such as rhythm, movement, imitation of patterns, pitched instruments, sounds, and timbres, singing, Looper as songwriting and practise tool, and a little bit of music theory as well. The aim of the workshop is to enhance listening skills as well as achieving a feeling of teamwork, community, and the experience of success and togetherness. Equally important is to enjoy ourselves and having fun participating in the workshop :-) Music workshops in general are also good for relaxation, reducing stress and fosters a sense of unity, and encourages self-expression, resulting in more positive self-esteem.
WHAT WILL THE STUDENTS GET OUT OF IT?
Students and pupils can discover a sense of community when they work together to accomplish a common goal. It helps with concentration and patience. Playing elements of music, such as rhythm and music together creates a lot of fun and enjoyment. Pupils will find they can usually produce an acceptable sound with percussive sounds or on an instrument relatively quickly, without having to put in hours of practice. This makes workshops accessible to pupils of all abilities. Percussion drumming and music workshops are a very positive activity for schools which will enhance pupils':
WHAT WILL THE STUDENTS BE DOING?
They will learn by listening, visual learning, and then trying out stuff by trial end error in a safe environment. The students or pupils do not need to have any previous experience of playing an instrument or the ability to read music. The workshops will consist of the following:
Introduction to pulse, beat, rhythm and groove. An explanation of the basics
The body as an instrument and source of rhythm, clapping, imitation exercises, question, and answer
HOW LONG DOES A PROGRAMME LAST?
A program can be a single workshop experience or can be a series of workshops or events.
