On Wednesday 14, 21 February and 7 March music students from the Royal Conservatory will run a music project in all classes. The main goal is to stimulate creativity through sound and technology in a playful way; explore new ways of approaching music education practices.

They will have 3 different activities based on these goals:

1. Making an Instrument: Explore the every day recycled materials for a different purpose to interact through sound. We will make instruments and music together.

2. Electricity; Sonic Fruits: Discuss the differences between the fruits and vegetables through sound. Use the fruits and vegetables in a musical ensemble setting connected to the computer (fruits and vegetables will be connected with wires to a computer; the different structures/water levels will give various sounds, so a banana will sound differently than a cucumber).

3: Kinesthetic: Sound Drawing: Giving the kids a kinesthetic experience through drawing and sound. (Children’s drawings will be ‘read’ with a pen connected to a computer and translated into sound)
