“Where words fail, music speaks.” – Hans Christian Anderson
Music is a language that crosses all ages, cultures and abilities. If you are a keen singer, wanting to explore different sounds or simply appreciate listening to recorded and live music, we will cover this through a range of large and small group activities.
Music helps to –
Increase self-expression and creativity
Develop communication skills e.g. listening
Encourage team work and turn taking
Develop confidence in timekeeping
Develop literacy and numeracy skills
Encourage evaluation skills
There will be opportunities to develop your skills using different performing methods such as:
Singing and playing instruments
An example music workshop would include a (vocal) warm up, percussion games and then opportunities to work in a small group themed activity where everyone is encouraged to participate.
