Music is actually a variety of orderly arrangement of things; common things in life encounter differently, and therefore produce countless interesting and pleasant sound clips. A special symphony could be composed by a reorganization of the sounds from brushing teeth, splashing mirrors, pouring tea and zippering. The workshop will guide the children to create solo and ensemble pieces of music by listening, exploring and playing. Our children are also welcome to bring a small object to explore with the instructors its sound character.
