OnlineWorkshop - Rhythm fun with little things

Games and small pieces with pens, cups, paper, rulers, matchboxes, stones, hands, feet and voice

Due to the corona pandemic, the originally planned course will be conducted as an online seminar.

There is hardly anything that you can't "play" with - and that certainly includes musical-instrumental playing. Once you've started to get rhythmically involved with the things around you, you keep discovering new "instruments" and ways of playing. These games and pieces are also about the common groove, individual dexterity, attention, contact, improvisation - and always about the rhythmic fun! In between there are little rhythm games and mini pieces "without anything", only with body and voice. They can serve - also in school - to relax and loosen up and contribute to the deepening of rhythmic experiences.

The offer is aimed primarily at teachers who work with 8-12/13 year olds, i.e. 3rd - 6th/7th grade. However, simplifications are also offered, as well as possibilities to make something more complex.

A script with the contents will be sent out in advance; this will also provide the list of
This will also provide a list of small items that the participants need to have on hand as working material.
