Workshop for children

with Mirjam Leitner
Community Artist / Music and Dance Educator / Drama Teacher

How does the wind sound between the trees? Can you capture the murmur of the water of Ferchenbach Brook? What songs can we think of together to describe the mood in the forest?

This workshop is about music in the natural world around Schloss Elmau. Together, we will go in search of sounds in the meadow and in the forest. Natural materials are used to create sound, water accompanies us, and birds or crickets inspire us to compose songs. We take instruments and use them to write our own songs. At the closing concert, parents are invited to explore the area with us, and experience our tunes, sounds, and songs in nature.

Mirjam Leitner's childhood was shaped by music and nature. She brings these two enriching aspects together in this offer. As a community artist, she leads a variety of projects and offers workshops and training in instrument making, music and dance theater, and dance. More info at www.community-arts.eu
