Sing, Move and Play: An Integrated Approach to Music – Whangarei
Using a contemporary NZ children’s story, participants will learn how to engage students in imitating and creating music and movement, in response to the stories motivation. Participants will be scaffolded to work collaboratively, to create a movement and music ensemble piece, using voice, percussion and barred instruments.
