For kids ages 7 – 12
Being a musician involves coordinating different skills at the same time. Some are physical, such as getting your fingers, arms, and breath organized in specific movements. Others are cognitive, such as reading music, converting it into sound and movement, and understanding what meter or tonality you are in.
Musicians also feel and express emotions through their music, using their imagination and empathy. In this workshop, we will find ways of coordinating all these skills, helping each musician find a “flow” or “groove” as they perform their music.
Please bring your instrument and one piece of music from your lesson or group class. We will use music and movement to explore these ideas, then apply them to your pieces.
