The songs take us through the year, celebrating the seasons and the festivals. They range from unaccompanied songs and rounds to songs with accompaniments from a variety of instruments. In common with all Colin Tanser’s songs, they are eminently ‘singable’; and where there are accompaniments they are sensitive and effective.
Movement – Sound – Music with Veronika Roemer
We will work with metal instruments (gongs, rods, cymbals, and others), stringed instruments (lyres, including pentatonic and Bordun lyres, psalteries, chrottas), wind instruments (C-flutes, pentatonic flutes, ocarinas), and percussion instruments (drums, rattles, etc.). Our work will be based on the books by Reinhild Brass (Hörwege entdecken) and Gerhard Beilharz (Musik in Pädagogik und Therapie and Erziehen und heilen durch Musik), focusing on new methods in music pedagogy and therapy, as is possible with these new instruments. No previous musical experience necessary.
