Movement makes for singing (for children under 12 years) – Tom Johnson

workshop (90-150 min.)
conducting - teaching
Saturday 9.30hrs
Domplein 4

Singing and moving are very similar activities. Both naturally start from your body, both develop organically and both have a positive effect on us. Combining the two feels completely natural and offers many benefits on a physical and mental level. This workshop was designed for conductors and teachers who work with children under 12 years old. At this age, they still have a limited body awareness. Therefore, they need to work with imitative formats that appeal to the unconscious. Tom provides tools that can help you work on vocal development and teach songs efficiently, using movement. Join Tom to discover how you can deploy movement as a tool, helping you to make progress in both vocal development and performance practice.

This workshop is presented in partnership with Koor&Stem.
