Music and Drama in Creative Education 18th and 19th June 2016
‘Elemental Music Drama’ In the field of a creative Elemental Music and Dance Education, the main aim is to stop working in a routine way and take into account the individual possibilities and wishes of the children while experiencing speech patterns, playing instruments, singing, movement and dancing. We will develop one story together to become a whole play. We begin with planning, further creating all scenes with movement, music and speech and end with a little performance.
