Music has been neurologically proved to be a super skill that helps children to develop their intelligence in profound ways, thanks to the abstract nature of music that activates most areas of the brain simultaneously while using the body. This special week is designed to be an incredible immersion into the world of music employing a highly innovative method: the Helicona project, winner of the REMA AWARDS 2022, as Cross-Border Project of the year.
This method embraces a myriad of disciplines like, horsemanship, fencing, dancing and theatre: Music will be experienced though games that will merge the improvisational elements of music with the playful elements of other disciplines.
This course is designed for young musicians; ideally, participants should come to the course with a background of three years in a Music School, so that they can easily experiment with musical games! Participants are therefore invited to bring their instruments when possible. The course will be held principally in English due to our multi-cultural team of instructors, while being aware that the children may have only a basic proficiency of the language. It is our principal objective to encourage children to experience music as the most powerful language to communicate with.
- All musical instruments are welcomed, Every participant has to be responsible for her/his instrument (Keyboards to be discussed with the organisation).
- Causal dress is required for activities outside.
