Music – movement workshop for primary school children

The musical movement workshop for elementary school children continues for another year after the wonderful moments it gave us last year. To play music is to explore, to discover, to listen, to share, to gather, to coordinate and tune, to dance with the sounds and to direct my body, to express and express myself, to respect and propose, to rejoice and to sing my sorrow, to speak a language that everyone can understand but which at the same time is a secret.
