Babelut Series: Musical dialogues during Klankenbad

Sat 02 Oct 2021 - 09:00 to 12:00
vzw AMUZ [Festival van Vlaanderen-Antwerpen], Kammenstraat 81, 2000 Antwerpen

Human beings show the greatest talent for music in their earliest childhood. It is therefore wonderful to sing simple songs with babies and toddlers and to experiment with rhythm and sound. In the AMUZ foyer, you can introduce your child to musicality during four short sessions.

The workshops are based on the Music Learning Theory of E. Gordon, who is internationally renowned as one of the most important educationalists specialised in early childhood. His theory claims that musicality is acquired the same way as language, and that it is developed by singing, moving rhythmically, engaging with all kinds of notes and rhythms before notation and music theory are introduced. You can start with this before birth, because a child is already receptive to stimuli and sound in the womb! Gordon’s theory demonstrates that coming into contact with music at a very early age has a significant influence on future musical development. So it is a great idea to stimulate your child and bring them into contact with music through play, especially because it is so much fun for both the children and their parents!

We work in five age categories. As a parent or guardian, you will discover how you can make music with your child at home as well.
