The overall objective of this course is to give participants the ability to use music/percussion in their classrooms with the participation of all students. This will be achieved by learning warm-up techniques, exercises, games and a host of rhythms leading to performance on actual percussion instruments
We will be using pulse, tempo, tones, prepared instruments, homemade instruments, the human voice and the human body. Background will be given on the use of percussion on a local and global scale. The group will learn concentrating/focusing techniques, ways of exploring individuality in musical expression as well as experiencing first hand ensemble music making and the many elements surrounding performance. Continually exploring the element of self-esteem through personal achievement.
All participants will develop new skills enabling them to instigate active music making in their class/school. Participants will have an understanding of how literacy and numeracy themes can be integrated into many of the exercises and rhythms. Providing opportunities for the understanding of listening, performing and composing in the world of music.
