Describe clearly the content of this workshop:
I teach the students to find their own music. It’s for instruments and voices. Everybody has his/her own language in music. Special exercises will lead them to it. So they will learn to play/sing in their unique way. This helps to find courage to play or sing a solo or a chorus in a band or an ensemble. And also it will bring you to that point to enjoy your own music in any situations of life. Making music yourself at home is good for relaxing, crying, being funny, enjoying life and good things. This workshop tries to help the students to find self-confidence. It’s not for learning special music scales. Because the main point of music is not a scale – it’s the heart.
