Workshops

„ Our heart felt thanks for an excellent workshop. The boys were overjoyed by it“
Barbara von Joest, Mother of two participants

My workshops for children and youngsters are all about making music together, joint experiences, developing musical expression and creatively coming to terms with the elements of music….all of this with fun and enjoyment!

Each workshop has its own theme which we examine from various angles. We perform experiments, make music, use body movement, we paint and we improvise.

By encouraging the participants to come up with their own ideas and by approaching the practise elements creatively everyone profits with these new impulses and newly gained knowledge. This promotes an increase in musical expression.

I can also customise workshops for your own particular needs. Please let me know.
