TROUBADOURS en fête Living testimony to those long gone times...

It will help the children in their study of instrumental play and musical form, and assist you in teaching dance and movement.

 

In this spirit, you are invited to experience a journey across time, a unique aubade, by rediscovering the various facets of the Orff Schulwerk in its most noble armour. Hommage will be given to song, recorder, instrumentation, dance, creativity and spontaneity as the repertoire comes back to life under your baton.
