Musical and pedagogical workshop for young children (4-8) with their parents.
This program is aimed at children (4-8 years old) and their parents, so that together we can enjoy music, share feelings and chat.
It is no coincidence that we use the verb “to play” for music. So this first approach of children to music will move around the game, the musical game and through this the children’s musicality, the joy of cooperation and creative thinking will emerge. Movement, speech, musical instruments will be our supplies for this journey.
