Thematic Materials for Musical Presentations & Celebrations
This workshop is designed to draw ideas and themes from across the curriculum and to integrate them into an artistic experience through the media of dance, song, and instrumental playing. Particular emphasis will be placed on using the classroom as a laboratory for the development of the themes presented. Please bring all available voices of recorders and remember to wear comfortable clothes. The workshop will be movement based, using new materials, but will incorporate much more, too. Materials will be appropriate for grades 1-6.
