Singing and Playing in the Classroom

Buy tickets

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 an interactive session of singing and music-making for the primary classroom.

At this workshop you will:

-Explore different songs and repertoire for classroom use
-Learn a variety of warm up and song teaching ideas and techniques
-Look at strategies to create a simple percussion arrangement for a song
-Scaffold the activities above from simple to more complex

You are invited to join us 15 mins prior to the advertised start time for registrations and afternoon tea.

The workshop will run for two hours from the advertised start time.
