Celebrating Imagination: The Art of Play (May 2016)

May 31, 2016 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Would you like to inspire a light-hearted and free approach to music-making in your projects? Would you like to inspire music leadership in all of your participants, including early years?

Through play and improvisation, this CPD introduces processes, activities and games from our own Soundcastle projects which can be used with any age group, including mixed ages, to inspire the creation of new music. We will explore both vocal and instrumental practice as well as group improvisation and communication games. We discuss the idea of learning through doing, how play is fundamental to creativity and how you can release the musical inhibitions of your participants through thoughtful facilitation.

The primary focus of this CPD is to examine the following:

  • How to use playing with sounds, words and space to inspire creative music-making
  • How to use physical play activities such as dance and drama as contributors to music-making
  • How to design your own creative processes which use play as a starting point
  • How to inspire music leadership in all ages including early years
