Music as storytelling
The magic of music allows us to tell stories, craft imaginations, and build on a child’s creative spirit. In these sessions, young minds will interact with our facilitators, allowing children to create stories of their own, and see how the music changes with every twist and turn. Older children will be brought on a journey through time and space – exploring various periods of music, composers, genres and stories in music.
Singing is Joy
Singing is the best way to begin a child’s musical journey, and these sessions will adapt Kodály teaching ideas to help children learn solfege singing and rhythm reading.
The festival will culminate in this finale event, in which participants will submit videos of themselves playing a piece of music and telling the audience something interesting about the music they have chosen. They will also be encouraged to share their learning experiences during the festival.
