Participants will use their bodies as their instruments for exploring new musical concepts. Movement-based activities will let them experience meaningful rhythmic patterns and allow them to express their perceptions towards music that they hear. The eurhythmics class would definitely be a fun way to develop one’s sense of artistry and imagination!
Students would be given the opportunity to explore different Orff instruments such as Glockenspiel, Bongos, Djembe, Hand drum, Tambourine, Triangle, Maracas and many more! Following Orff’s discovery-based learning approach to music pedagogy, this activity will aim to nurture each participant’s creativity through encouraging improvisation that will surely open their minds to the many possibilities in music! At the end of the session, all participants will be playing in a much-awaited collaborative performance!
Attending the Instrument-a-day class is certainly a great way to bask in the wonderful world of music! Rated as one of the most popular activities in Aureus, this part of the programme allows each student to select a musical instrument and get a hands-on experience on the basics of how to properly hold and play it. All-time favourites such as Violin, Cello, Guitar, Ukelele, Drums and Trumpet would surely be available!
Learn about the different areas of music in a fun way! The beginners’ class is a great opportunity to unleash the future Mozarts in the participants through creatively structured music theory lessons and exciting games!
Building a strong foundation in music theory would surely pave the way for students to acquire profound musicianship skills! In the advanced theory class, participants will be able to explore stimulating concepts such as Compound Time Signature, Accidentals, Scales, Key Signatures and more!
Furthermore, we will be launching choral workshops and musical ensemble classes! These activities are designed to provide students with opportunities to further develop their musicianship skills in a friendly and collaborative atmosphere.
The Aureus Choral Workshop is for young singers who would like to experience the joys of singing and mixing voices with peers! Part-singing, rounds and canons are just few of the vocal ensemble drills that will surely enhance each participant’s ability to sing passages independently while blending with other partcipants’ voices. Moreover, students in this session will also learn about basic vocal techniques on how to produces a smooth and resonating voice! The Choral Workshop is certainly a great way to explore the different aspects of singing!
Collaborating with fellow instrumentalists is indeed a delightful experience! Playing musical instruments with peers eases performance anxiety and boosts one’s self-confidence. In the ensemble class, students will be grouped according to the instrument that they are learning and will be given the chance to perform pieces for duets, trios and quartets! This is also a great opportunity to learn from fellow musicians in a supportive and enjoyable setting.
