Singing workshop with Musica Viva

Let’s sing! Singing and playing in the primary classroom | Tuesday 21 May | 4.30–6.30pm (arrive 4.15) | Windsong Pavilion

Why sing? Apart from being great fun, it connects us to others, and the voice is the most accessible and fundamental of all instruments! Join us for a fun and interactive session of singing and music-making for the primary classroom. We will be exploring different songs and repertoire, warm-ups and teaching techniques, and strategies for creating class arrangements of songs with percussion accompaniments, all the while scaffolding activities from simple to more complex. Come and share in the joy of singing and take music teaching tools back to use in your classroom.

This workshop will be facilitated by Jemma Tabet, Professional Development Manager, Musica Viva in Schools. Four Winds and Musica Viva present this Teacher, Musician and Educators Professional Development Singing Workshop.

Whether you have children of your own or simply remember your own childhood, you’ll know the earnestness and the innocence, the sheer magic, the love and sorrow. For this concert with the VOX young adult choir, their director Elizabeth Scott brings together exquisite music that captures fragility and wonder.
